Jesus takes up His cross

We adore you, Christ, and we bless you.

Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

Jesus takes the cross upon his shoulders.  Jesus Master, invites us: "If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me."

I want to follow you, Divine Master, by accepting my daily cross.

Draw me to yourself, Lord.  The road is narrow, but it leads to heaven.  On the way I will lean on you, my guide and comfort.

Have mercy on us!

Holy Mother:

Oh, how sad and sore distressed,

Was that Mother highly blest,

Of the sole-begotten one!

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.
