The Cyrenian helps Jesus carry the cross

We adore you, Christ, and we bless you.

Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

With false compassion, "they compelled a passerby, Simon of Cyrene, to carry the cross" of Jesus.

I too am bound to cooperate in the redemption, completing with my sufferings the passion of Jesus Christ.

Accept me, good Master, as a small victim. Preserve us all from sin, save sinners from hell, and free the souls in purgatory from their sufferings.

Have mercy on us!

Holy Mother:

Can the human heart refrain,

From partaking in her pain,

In that Mother's pain untold?

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.
