THE FOURTH STATION

JESUS MEETS

HIS AFFLICTED MOTHER

 

We adore you, O Christ,

and we bless you

Because by your holy cross

you have redeemed the world.

 

FROM SACRED SCRIPTURE

Gospel of Luke 2: 34-35, 51b

Simeon blessed them

and said to Mary his mother, 

“Behold, this child is destined 

for the fall and rise of many in Israel, 

and to be a sign

that will be contradicted 

(and by yourself a sword will pierce) 

so that the thoughts

of many hearts 

may be revealed.”

And his mother

kept all these things in her heart.

PRAYER

Holy Mary, 

Mother of the Lord,

you remained faithful

when the disciples fled. 

Just as you believed

the angel’s incredible message 

that you would become

the Mother of the Most High, 

so too you believed 

at the hour of his greatest abasement. 

In this way,

at the hour of the Cross,

at the hour of the world's darkest night, 

you became the Mother of all believers, 

the Mother of the Church. 

We beg you: 

teach us to believe, 

and grant that our faith 

may bear fruit in courageous service 

and be the sign of a love 

ever ready to share suffering 

and to offer assistance.

 

HYMN

At the cross her station keeping

Stood the mournful Mother weeping

Close to Jesus to the last
