‘The Way of the Cross’: Jesus Dies on the Cross

Twelfth Station

Jesus Dies on the Cross

On the cross, Lord, you too bore the weight of scorn, mockery, insults, violence, abandonment and indifference. Only Mary, your mother, and a few other women stayed with you as witnesses to your suffering and death. May their example inspire in us a commitment to stand by all those dying today on Calvaries throughout the world. Lord, we implore you: help us to be true neighbors to those newly crucified and despairing in today’s world. Teach us to wipe away their tears, to comfort them, even as you were consoled by the presence of Mary and the other women beneath your cross.

From “The Way of the Cross with Pope Francis.” To order a free copy, visit, or write wotc@cnewa.orgThere is also an exclusive video of this entire devotion available for viewing here.
