13. Jesus is taken down from the Cross


13. Jesus is taken down from the Cross


We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You.
Because, by Your holy cross, You have redeemed the world.



Meditation
Consider how, after Our Lord had died, He was taken down from the cross by two of His disciples, Joseph and Nicodemus, and placed in the arms of His afflicted Mother. She received Him with unutterable tenderness and pressed Him close to her bosom. O Mother of Sorrows, for the love of Your Son, accept me as Your servant and pray to Him for me, and You, my Redeemer, since you have died for me, allow me to love You, for I desire only You and nothing more.



Prayer
I love You, Jesus, my love; I repent of ever having offended You. Never let me separate myself from You again. Grant that I may love You always; and then do with me as You will.



Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be



By the cross with you to stay
There with you to weep and pray
Is all I ask of you to give.
