The Tenth Station: Jesus is stripped of his garments
We adore thee, O Christ, and we bless thee. Because by thy holy cross thou hast redeemed the world.
When they came to a place called Golgotha ( which means the place of a skull), they offered him wine to drink, mingled with gall; but when he tasted it, he would not drink it. And they divided his garments among them by casting lots. This was to fulfill the scripture which says, "They divided my garments among them; cast lots for my clothing."
Lord God, whose blessed Son our Savior gave his body to be scourged and his face to be spit upon: Give us grace to accept joyfully the sufferings of the present time, confident of the glory that shall be revealed; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Holy God, Holy and Mighty, Holy Immortal One, Have mercy upon us.
Who, on Christ's dear Mother gazing,
Pierced by anguish so amazing
Born of woman, would not weep?
