Stations of the Cross

 

The ELEVENTH Station
Jesus is nailed to the Cross

 


We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you:
Because by your holy Cross you have redeemed the world.

And when they came to the place which is called The Skull, there they crucified him, and the criminals, one on the right and one on the left.

When they came to the place of which God had told him, Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar, upon the wood. Then Abraham put forth his hand and took the knife to slay his son. But the angel of the Lord called to him from heaven, and said, "Abraham, Abraham!" And he said, "Here am I." He said, "Do not lay your hand on the lad or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, seeing you have not withheld your son, your only son, from me." And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, behind him was a ram, caught in a thicket by his horns; and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son. So Abraham called the name of that place The Lord will provide; as it is said to this day, "On the mount of the Lord it shall be provided."

Blessed Savior, nailed to the Cross: fasten our hearts there also, that they may be united to you until death shall take us, and with our last breath we shall have yielded up our souls to you. Amen.

O Savior of the world, by your Cross and precious Blood you have redeemed us:
Save us and help us, we humbly beseech you, O God.
 

True repentance, Jesus, win me:
Savior, print thy wounds within me.
Brand them on my stubborn heart.
