Jesus is taken down from the cross and given to His Mother

We adore you, Christ, and we bless you.

Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

The sorrowful Mary received her Son into her arms, after he was taken down from the cross.

Mary contemplates in his wounds the horrible work of our sins and Jesus' infinite love

for us.

Devotion to Mary is a sign of salvation.  Mother accept me as your child.  Accompany me throughout my life.  Assist me daily and especially in the hour of my death.

Have mercy on us!

Holy Mother:

By the cross with you to stay,

There with you to weep and pray,

Is all I ask of you to give.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be.
