The Eighth Station: Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem
We adore thee, O Christ, and we bless thee. Because by thy holy cross thou hast redeemed the world.
There followed after Jesus a great multitude of people, and among them were women who bewailed and lamented him. But Jesus turning to them said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children."
Teach thy Church, O Lord, to mourn the sins of which we are guilty, and to repent and forsake them; that by thy pardoning grace, their consequences may not be visited upon our children nor our children's children; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Holy God, Holy and Mighty, Holy Immortal One, Have mercy upon us.
