THE EIGHTH STATION

JESUS MEETS

THE WOMEN OF JERUSALEM

 

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 2:28-31

Jesus turned to them and said,

“Daughters of Jerusalem,

do not weep for me; 

weep instead for yourselves

and for your children, 

for indeed, the days are coming

when people will say,

‘Blessed are the barren, 

the wombs that never bore 

and the breasts that never nursed’

At that time people

will say to the mountains, 

‘Fall upon us!’

and to the hills, ‘Cover us!’

for if these things are done

when the wood is green 

what will happen when it is dry?”

PRAYER

Lord Jesus,

to the weeping women

you spoke of repentance 

and the Day of Judgment, 

when all of us will stand

before your face:

before you,

the judge of the world. 

You call us to leave behind

the trivialization of evil, 

which slaves our consciences 

and allows us to carry on as before. 

You show us

the seriousness of our responsibility, 

the danger of our being found guilty 

and without excuse

on the Day of Judgment. 

Grant that we may not simply

walk at your side, 

with nothing to offer

other than compassionate words.

Convert us and give us new life.

Grant that in the end

we will not be dry wood, 

but living branches in you, 

the true vine,

bearing fruit for eternal life.

 

HYMN

At the cross her station keeping

Stood the mournful Mother weeping

Close to Jesus to the last
