The Twelfth Station - Jesus Dies.
We adore you O Christ and we praise you.
Because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world!
Christ Speaks: The Cross becomes a pulpit now - "Forgive them, Father... You will be with me in Paradise... There is your mother... There...your son... I thirst... It is complete." To speak I have to raise myself by pressing on my wrists and feet, and every move engulfs me in new waves on pain and agony. And then, when I have borne enough, have emptied my humanity. I entrust my spirit into my Father's hands.
We Speak: Loving Jesus, what can we say? We offer you our death with all its pains, accepting now the time and kind of death in store for us. Not by a single instant would we lengthen our life span. We offer you our death for our own sins and those of all humanity. God! God! Do not forsake us. We know not what we do!
