In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Lord Jesus Christ, we follow you with faith and love on the way of the cross. Let your pain be our pain, let your cross be our cross, let your death be our death, so that we may be with you in the glory of the resurrection for ever and ever. Amen.

After each Station:

We adore you, O Christ and we bless you.
All   Because by your holy Cross you have redeemed the world.
Christ became obedient for us unto death.
All   Even the death of the Cross.
