The Eleventh Station: Jesus in nailed to the Cross
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 which is call the Skull, there they crucified him; and with him the crucified two criminals, one on the right, the other on the left, and Jesus between them. And the scripture was fulfilled which says, "He was numbered with the transgressors."
Lord Jesus Christ, who didst stretch out thy arms of love on the hard wood of the cross that everyone might come within the reach of thy saving embrace: So clothe us in thy Spirit that we, reaching forth our hands in love, may bring those who do not know thee to the knowledge and love of thy Holy Name. Amen.
Holy God, Holy and Mighty, Holy Immortal One, Have mercy upon us.
Who on Christ's dear Mother thinking,
Such a cup of sorrow drinking
Would not share her sorrows deep?
