Jesus of Nazareth Carries the Cross



In the name of the Father
and of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit.


Lord Jesus Christ, true God and true man,
I am heartily sorry for having sinned You and my neighbor.
You are my Lord and my Brother whom I love above all things.
Come and help me, not to sin again,
and led me into a new life.
I trust in Your loving forgiveness.

Opening Prayer


Lord Jesus of Nazareth,
Your cross proclaims the wonder of Your love.
Teach us to reflect on Your suffering,
death and resurrection,
in order to have an unfailing faith in Your goodness that has no end.
You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit
forever and ever. Amen.

Reflection: [Mt. 27:31-34]

And when they had mocked him,
they stripped him of the cloak,
dressed him in his own clothes,
and lead him off to crucify him.
As they were going out,
they met a Cyrenian named Simon;
this man they pressed into service to carry his cross.
And when they came to a place called Golgotha
(which means Place of the Skull),
they gave Jesus wine to drink, mixed with gall.
But when he had tasted it, he refused to drink.

Strive to be with Jesus of Nazareth as He carries His cross to take away our sins.

[Short Silence]


The way of the cross gives us the strength to carry our cross on the way to heaven.


* (R)Lord Jesus of Nazareth, make us strong to follow your footsteps.

Lord Jesus you give consolation to the lonely,
the suffering, and the sick.
Lay your healing hands on them so that they may feel Your presence. (R)

Lord make us faithful witnesses in doing good. (R)

Deliver from evil all who travel by land, sea and air;
lead them safely to their destination. (R)

Have mercy on parents who fail in their duties,
on children who lose their way,
and on people who keep envy and anger in their hearts.
Show them love that they may turn back to You. (R)

[Pause for Personal Intentions]

Father in heaven,
in obedience to Your will,
Your Son, Jesus of Nazareth,
carried the cross for our salvation.
Grant that we, who believe in the mystery of the cross,
may share in the glory of heaven.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.



(R) Have mercy and save us.

Blood of Christ, the only Son of the Father. (R)
Blood of Christ of the old and everlasting covenant. (R)
Blood of Christ that washes away my sins and the sins of the world. (R)
Blood of Christ that formed like sweat and fell to the ground at Gethsemane. (R)
Blood of Christ that flowed out while You were scourged at the pillar. (R)
Blood of Christ that covered Your face at the crowning of thorns. (R)
Blood of Christ, scorned by the people on the road of Jerusalem. (R)
Blood of Christ, emptying itself at the crucifixion. (R)
Blood of Christ, source of our salvation. (R)
Blood of Christ, river of mercy and forgiveness. (R)
Blood of Christ, that won over violence and injustice. (R)
Blood of Christ, refuge of the abused and the downtrodden. (R)
Blood of Christ, strength of those who suffer. (R)
Blood of Christ, consolation of lonely souls. (R)
Blood of Christ, hope of sinners. (R)
Blood of Christ, that makes strong the weak and the afflicted. (R)
Blood of Christ that leads the poor souls into heaven. (R)

Concluding Prayer:


Lord God, our Father, You willed that Your Son, Jesus,
died on the cross for the sins of the world.
Grant us the grace to be one with His suffering
so that we may be worthy to hope for a new life.
Help us to walk the way of Your commandments
and to serve You in our neighbors.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
