Jesus Is Taken Down From The Cross

Thirteenth Station of the Cross

Jesus is taken down from the Cross

Zechariah 12: 10

“They shall look on Him whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him as one mourns for an only Son.”

LORD Jesus Christ, You were taken down from the cross and placed in the arms of Your loving mother.

At the Cross her station keeping Stood the mournful Mother weeping, Close to Jesus to the last.

Through her heart His sorrow sharing, All His bitter anguish bearing, Lo! the piercing sword has passed.

Saw her Son from judgment taken, Her beloved in death forsaken, Till His spirit forth He sent.

Jesus, may Your Cross defend me, And Your Mother’s prayer befriend me.

Grant us the grace of faith, hope and charity so that we, like Mary, may stand without flinching beneath the Cross until our last breath.

Praise the LORD.
