To pray the Way of the Cross requires only that you mediate on each Station
A Preparatory Act of Contrition
O Jesus, treasure of my soul, infinitely good, infinitely merciful, behold me prostrate at
Thy sacred feet! Sinner as I am, I fly to the arms of Thy mercy, and implore that grace
which melts and converts - the grace of true compunction. I have offended Thee,
adorable Jesus! I repent; let the favor of my love equal the baseness of my ingratitude.
This Way of the Cross, grant me to offer devoutly in memory of that painful journey
Thou hast travelled for our redemption, to the Cross of Calvary, with the holy design to
reform my morals, amend my life and gain these indulgences granted by
Thy vicars on earth.
We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you.
Lord by your Cross and Resurrection you have redeemed the world.
