Jesus Falls the Third Time
V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise
R. Because by Thy holy cross Thou hast redeemed the world.
Consider the third fall of Jesus Christ.
His weakness was extreme, and the cruelty of His executioners excessive,
who tried to hasten His steps when He had scarcely strength to move.
Ah, my outraged Jesus, by the merits of the
weakness Thou didst suffer in going to Calvary, give me strength sufficient
to conquer all human respect and all my wicked passions, which have led
me to despise Thy friendship. I love Thee, Jesus, my love, with my whole
heart; I repent of having offended Thee. Never permit me to offend Thee
again. Grant that I may love Thee always; and then do with me what Thou
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to
|Fac ut ardeat cor meum
In amando Christum Deum
Ut sibi complaceam.
|Make me feel as Thou hast felt:
Make my soul to glow and melt
With the love of Christ, my Lord.
