Stations of the Cross - 4th Station
My Lord Jesus Christ, you have made this journey to die for me with love unutterable, and yet I have so many times unworthily abandoned you; but now I love you with my whole heart, and because I love you I repent sincerely for having ever offended you. Pardon me, my God, and permit me to accompany you on this journey. You go to die for love of me; I wish also, my beloved Redeemer, to die for love of you. My Jesus, I will live and die always united to you
My most loving Jesus, by the sorrow you experienced in this meeting, grant me the grace of a truly devoted love for your most holy Mother. And Mother of God, obtain for me through your intercession, a continual and tender remembrance of the Passion of my Savior, your Son. I love you, Jesus and I repent of ever having offended Thee.
Jesus was a diligent and caring Son. Do I do as much for my mother as I can? Do I love her as purely as Jesus wishes me to do?
At my selling table I will be more observant of the young mothers there with their children. I will offer silent prayers for her whatever her crosses might be.
Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. And give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at teh hour of our death.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
