Devotion to the Seven Words spoken from The CROSS

 

First Word: Father, Forgive Them, For They Know Not What They Do.

 

O Jesus, who hung in agony upon the Cross out of love for me, and by your pains paid for my sins, you who spoke of pardon for your persecutors, obtain pardon for all those who are now facing death, and have pity on me when I am facing mine. By the merits of your precious blood shed for our salvation, grant us continual sorrow for our sins so that we may share eternal life with you. Amen.

 

Have mercy on us,O Lord.

My God, I believe in you, I hope in you, I love you. I am sorry for my sins because by them I have offended you.

 

 

Second Word: This Day Shall You Be With Me In Paradise.

 

My Jesus, who in agony on the Cross, did readily respond to the faith of the good thief who acknowledged you as the Son of God, you who assured him of a place in heaven, pity all of those who are facing death and pity me when I am facing mine. By the merit of your precious blood, shed for us, wake up in our souls a firm and steadfast faith. Protect us from the temptations of Satan so that we may obtain the prize of holy paradise with you forever. Amen.

 

Have mercy on us, O Lord.

My God, I believe in you, I hope in you, I love you. I am sorry for my sins because by them I have offended you.

 

 

The Third Word: Behold Your Son; Behold Your Mother.

 

Oh Jesus, who out of love for me hung in agony on the Cross and who left your own most holy Mother as a sign of your love so that through her intercession we might seek your assistance, have pity on us. Have pity on all the faithful who are facing death and have pity on me when I also shall face mine. By the sorrows of your dear Mother, nurture in our hearts a hope that, through the merits of your precious blood, we may escape the sentence of eternal death in hell. Amen.

 

Have mercy on us, O Lord.

My God, I believe in you, I hope in you, I love you. I am sorry for my sins because by them I have offended you.

 

 

The Fourth Word: My God! My God! Why Have You Forsaken Me?

 

O Jesus, out of love for me you hung in agony upon the Cross. While bodily suffering and indignities were heaped upon you, the most desperate desolation of spirit was being forsaken by your eternal Father. Have pity on all the faithful who are facing death, and pity me when I too shall be facing mine. By the merits of your precious blood, may we patiently suffer our last agony, and may we join our pains with yours so that wemay be made partakers of your glory in paradise. Amen.

 

Have mercy on us, O Lord.

My God, I believe in you, I hope in you, I love you. I am sorry for my sins because by them I have offended you.

 

 

The Fifth Word: I Thirst.

 

O Jesus, in agony you hung upon the Cross for me. You suffered unquenchable physical thirst and an insatiable tolerance for insults and sufferings. Yet the more you suffered so that all people might be saved, the more you demonstrated the enormous love you had in your heart. Pity all the faithful who are now facing death, and pity me when I also shall be facing mine. By the merits of your precious blood, fire in our hearts such a great love that we will be made one with you for all eternity. Amen.

 

Have mercy on us, O Lord.

My God, I believe in you, I hope in you, I love you. I am sorry for my sins because by them I have offended you.

 

 

The Sixth Word: It Is Consummated.

 

O Jesus, you hung in agony on the Cross for love of me. From this tree you announced the truth of my redemption, a redemption which made us children of God and heirs of heaven. Pity all the faithful who are now facing death; pity me when I also shall be facing mine. By the merits of your precious blood, detach us from the pleasures of the world and grant us the grace to offer you the sacrifice of our life in reparation for our sins. Amen.

 

Have mercy on us, O Lord.

My God, I believe in you, I hope in you, I love you. I am sorry for my sins because by them I have offended you.

 

 

The Seventh Word: Father, Into Your Hands I Commend My Spirit.

 

Ojesus, you hung in agony on the Cross for love of me. You accomplished my salvation through your full acceptance of the will of your eternal Father. You commended your spirit into his hands, bowed your head, and died. Have pity on all the faithful who are now facing death, and pity me when I too shall be facing mine. By the merits of your precious blood, give us at our last breath a complete conformity to your divine will. Make us ready to live or die as it pleases you. Let us desire nothing more than to accomplish whatever you have willed for us. Amen.

 

Have mercy on us, O Lord. My God, I believe in you, I hope in you, I love you. I am sorry for my sins because by them I have offended you.
