Here Jesus Is Condemned to Death

Adoramus te, Christe, et benedicimus tibi. Quia per sanctam crucem tuam redemisti mundum.

Then Pilate released Barabbas to them. But he had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified. (Matthew 27,26)

Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. (Matthew 5,11)

Let us Pray

O Lord, you know that because of our human weakness we cannot resist the serious dangers we are exposed to, so give us health of mind and body so that, with your help we can overcome the temptations we suffer from because of our sins. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Through her heart, His sorrow sharing, All His bitter anguish bearing, Now at length the sword had passed.
