Chapel of Saint Francis of Assisi

Stations of the Cross

 
The Stations of the Cross in the Chapel of Saint Francis of Assisi at Bishop Luers High School were once in the chapel of a Benedictine monastery in England.
 
In connection with Bishop Luers' Franciscan history, here is the Franciscan Way of the Cross.
 
 

First Station

Jesus Condemned to Death

O Jesus!  so meek and uncomplaining, teach me resignation in trials.

Second Station

Jesus Carries His Cross

My Jesus, this Cross should be mine, not Thine; my sins crucified Thee.

Third Station

Our Lord Falls the First Time

O Jesus!  by this first fall, never let me fall into mortal sin.

 

Fourth Station

Jesus Meets His Mother

O Jesus!  may no human tie, however dear, keep me from following the road of the Cross.

Fifth Station

Simon the Cyrenean Helps Jesus Carry His Cross

Simon unwillingly assisted Thee; may I with patience suffer all for Thee.

Sixth Station

Veronica Wipes the Face of Jesus

O Jesus!  Thou didst imprint Thy sacred features upon Veronica’s veil; stamp them also indelibly upon my heart.

Seventh Station

The Second Fall of Jesus

By Thy second fall, preserve me, dear Lord, from relapse into sin.

Eighth Station

Jesus Consoles the Women of Jerusalem

My greatest consolation would be to hear Thee say:  “Many sins are forgiven thee, because thou hast loved much.”

Ninth Station

Third Fall of Jesus

O Jesus!  when weary upon life’s long journey, be Thou my strength and my perseverance.

Tenth Station

Jesus Stripped of His Garments

My soul has been robbed of its robe of innocence; clothe me, dear Jesus, with the garb of penance and contrition.

Eleventh Station

Jesus Nailed to the Cross

Thou didst forgive Thy enemies; my God, teach me to forgive injuries and FORGET them.

Twelfth Station

Jesus Dies on the Cross

Thou art dying, my Jesus, but Thy Sacred Heart still throbs with love for Thy sinful children.

Thirteenth Station

Jesus Taken Down from the Cross

Receive me into thy arms, O Sorrowful Mother; and obtain for me perfect contrition for my sins.

Fourteenth Station

Jesus Laid in the Sepulchre

When I receive Thee into my heart in Holy Communion, O Jesus, make it a fit abiding place for Thy adorable Body.  Amen.
