THE NINTH STATION

JESUS FALLS

A THIRD TIME

 

We adore you, O Christ,

and we bless you

Because by your holy cross

you have redeemed the world.

 

FROM SACRED SCRIPTURE

Old Testament

Book of Lamentations 3:27-32

It is good for a person, when young,

to bear the yoke,

to sit alone and in silence,

when its weight lies heavy,

to put one's mouth in the dust.

There may yet be hope.

To offer one's cheek to be struck,

to be filled with disgrace.

For the Lord does not reject forever.

Though he brings grief, he takes pity, 

according to the abundance

of his mercy.

PRAYER

Lord Jesus,

your Church often seems

like a boat about to sink, 

a boat taking in water on every side. 

In your field

we see more weeds than wheat. 

The soiled garments

and face of your Church 

throw us into confusion. 

Yet it is we ourselves

who have soiled them! 

It is we who betray you

time and time again, 

after all our lofty words

and grand gestures. 

Have mercy on your Church; 

within her too, Adam continues to fall. 

When we fall,

we drag you down to earth, 

and Satan laughs, 

for he hopes that you will not be able 

to rise from that fall; 

he hopes that being dragged down 

in the fall of your Church, 

you will remain

prostrate and overpowered. 

But you will rise again. 

You stood up, you arose,

and you can also raise us up. 

Save and sanctify your Church.

Save and sanctify us all.

 

HYMN

At the cross her station keeping

Stood the mournful Mother weeping

Close to Jesus to the last
