We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you.
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.  

 

Scripture Reading

 

One of the criminals hanging in crucifixion blasphemed Jesus: “Aren’t you  the Messiah? Then save yourself and us.” But the other
one rebuked him: “Have you no fear of God, seeing you are under the same sentence? We deserve it, after all. We are only
paying the price for what we’ve done, but this man has done nothing wrong.” He then said, “Jesus, remember me when you
enter upon your reign.” And Jesus replied, “I assure you; this day you will be with me in paradise.”
(Lk 23:39-43)  
 

Prayer Response

 

Eternal God, in an age in which thousands of people are called upon to die in the battles of their leaders, we have a King who
gave his life in our battle over sin and death. And even in the midst of his pain and agony, Jesus spoke a word of comfort to the
Good Thief, forgiving his sins and welcoming him to the Kingdom.
Father, give us the strength to follow the way of Jesus. In the
 midst of our pains and agonies, help us continue to comfort your people, sharing with them your forgiveness, your healing and
your life. One day may we all be united with you in the Kingdom.
We ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
 

 

Lord Jesus, crucified and risen,
  have mercy on us.
