The Eleventh Station - Jesus Is Nailed to the Cross
We adore you O Christ and we praise you.
Because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world!
Christ Speaks: Can you imagine a crucifixion? My executioners stretch my arms; they hold my hand and wrist against the wood and press the nail until it breaks my flesh. Then, with one heavy hammer strike, they drive the nail through and pain bursts like a bomb in my brain. They grab my other arm and agony again explodes. Then raising up my knees so that my feet are flat against the wood, they hammer them fast too!
We Speak: My God, we look at you and think are our souls worth this much pain and suffering? What can we give in return? We here and now accept for all our life whatever sickness, torment, agony, suffering that may come our way. To every cross we touch our lips. O blessed Cross that lets us be with you - co-redeemers of humanity!
