The Tenth Station - Jesus Is Stripped
We adore you O Christ and we praise you.
Because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world!
Christ Speaks: Behold, my friend, the poorest king to ever live. Before all creation I stand stripped. The Cross will be my deathbed but it is not even my own. Yet who has ever been richer? Possessing nothing, I own all my Father's love! If you, my friend, would own everything, be not solicitous about your food, your clothes your life.
We Speak: Loving Christ, we offer you our all - whatever we possess and more our very selves. Free us from the craving for prestige, position, influence, power, wealth. Root out in us all envy and jealousy of all who have more than us. Release us from vice of pride, the longing to exalt ourselves and lead us to the lowest place. May we truly be the poor in spirit, so that we can be rich in you!
