Stations of the CrossTraditional › Fourth Station ~ Jesus Meets His Sorrowful Mother

 

  Fourth Station
 
 


We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee, Because by Thy holy cross Thou hast redeemed the world.   

 

How painful and how sad it must have been for Mary, the sorrowful Mother, to behold her beloved Son, laden

with the burden of the cross! What unspeakable pangs her most tender heart experienced! How earnestly did she

desire to die in place of Jesus, or at least with Him! Implore this sorrowful Mother that she assists you in the

hour of your death.

 

O Jesus, O Mary, I am the cause of the great and manifold pains which pierce your loving hearts! Oh, that also

 my heart would feel and experience at least some of your sufferings! O Mother of Sorrows, let me participate in the

sufferings which thou and Thy Son endured for me, and let me experience thy sorrow, that afflicted with thee,

I may enjoy thy assistance in the hour of my death.

 

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed by Thy name, Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. 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. Amen. 

 

Hail, Mary, full of grace; the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

 

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.

 

Lord Jesus, crucified, Have mercy on us!

Christ above in torment hangs,
She beneath beholds the pangs,
Of her dying, glorious Son.
