  Thirteenth Station

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


Scripture Reading


There was a man named Joseph, an upright and holy member of the  Sanhedrin, who had not been associated with their plan
or their action. He was from Arimathea, a Jewish town, and he looked expectantly for the reign of God. This man approached
Pilate with a request for Jesus’ body. He took it down, wrapped it in fine linen, and laid it in a tomb hewn out of rock, in which
no one had yet been buried. That was the day of preparation and the Sabbath was about to begin. The women who had come
with him from Galilee followed along behind. They saw the tomb and how his body was buried. Then they went home to
prepare spices and perfumes. They observed the Sabbath as a day of rest, in accordance with the law.
(Lk 23:50-56)  

Prayer Response


Almighty God, it was a sad and lonely group who removed the body of Jesus from the cross. Abandoned by most of his
disciples and followers, his body was laid to rest in a borrowed tomb.
Father, who would have thought that anyone could give so completely of themself? To the foolish, his death would seem to be his destruction, but through the eyes of faith, his death
and resurrection give birth to the joys of new life. Help us accept the trials and misfortunes of this life, filled with hope in the
 resurrection and eternal life.
We ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.


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