The Second Station


My Lord Jesus Christ, Thou hast made this journey to die for me with love unutterable, and I have so many times unworthily abandoned Thee; but now I love Thee, I repent sincerely for having ever offended Thee. Pardon me, my God, and permit me to accompany Thee on this journey. Thou goest to die for love of me; I wish also my beloved Redeemer, to die for love of Thee. My Jesus, I will live and die always united to Thee.


Behold O kind and most sweet Jesus, I cast myself upon my knees in Thy
sight, and with the most fervent desire of my soul, I pray and beseech Thee
that Thou wouldst impress my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope, and
charity, with true contrition for my sins and a firm purpose of amendment;
while with deep affection and grief of soul, I ponder within myself and
mentally contemplate Thy Five Wounds, having before my eyes the words
which David the Prophet put on Thy lips concerning Thee:
"They have pierced My hands and My feet, they have numbered all My bones."

One Our Father and one Hail Mary, at least, should be said for the Roman
Pontiff's intentions if one is seeking to gain an Indulgence.
