Bilingual Stations of the Cross Prayed Fridays of Lent at 6:00 p.m.

OPENING PRAYER

God of power and mercy, in love your sent your Son that we might be cleansed of sin and live with you forever. Bless us as we gather to reflect on his suffering and death that we may learn from his example the way we should go.  We ask this through that same Christ, our Lord. Amen.

R. Because by Your holy cross You have redeemed the world

Stand

DEAR JESUS, there You stand a prisoner and wicked men have said that You must die. But You have done nothing wrong. You have spent You whole life in doing good to others. I must always remember that it was for me You died so that I could go to Heaven and be happy with You.

Teach me, dear Jesus when I am blamed for something even if unjustly to be silent as You were because I love You and want to be like You.

At the Cross her station keeping, Stood the mournful Mother weeping, Close to Jesus to the last.

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

DEAR JESUS, You are so weak and tired that You can hardly walk but the soldiers roughly order You to start Your journey. After a few steps You stumble and fall but there is no one to help You or speak to You kindly.

How I wish I could have been there to tell You that I love You and was so sorry for You.

Oh how sad and sore distressed, Was that Mother highly blest, Of the sole begotten One.

SEÑOR JESUS, ?quien esta esperandote cerca del lugar donde vas a pasar? Es tu propia Madre Bendita que te ama mucho, pero como le duele verte cruelmente maltratado. Ella quisiera que hicieran eso a ella en lugar de a tí.Los soldados no van a dejarla decir una palabra, ella solo podrá hablarte con los ojos cuando pases.

Querido Jesús, enseñame a amar mucho a Tu Bendita Madre.

Christ above in torment hangs, She beneath beholds the pangs, Of her dying glorious Son.

But teach me to remember that I am helping You even more now when I show kindness to others for Your sake.

Our Father | Hail Mary | Glory be

Is there one who would not weep, ‘Whelmed in miseries so deep, Christ’s dear Mother to behold?

La sangre corría de tu corona de espinas de tu cabeza a tus ojos cuando Santa Veronica abrió camino entre la multitud y limpió tu cara con su manto estampaste la foto de tu cara en su manto para agradecerle su atrevimiento.

Enseñame a recordar que no debo nunca tener miedo de decir que yo te pertenezco que soy tu hijo.

Can the human Heart refrain, From partaking in her pain, In that Mother’s pain untold?

R. Because by Your holy cross You have redeemed the world

Stand

DEAR JESUS, this time You fall more heavily than before and it is harder to get up. The soldiers push and strike You to make You hurry along when You can hardly walk. It frightens me to think how cruelly You are treated You Who are my Lord and my God.

Teach me to understand what a dreadful thing sin is because to pay for it You suffered so much.

que no lloren por Tí, pero si por sus hijos y por ellas mismas, porque mucha gente va a sufrir terriblemente al ser castigados por no haber creído en Tí.

Enseñame a sentir pena por mis pecados no por el miedo al castigo pero sí porque te causan dolor.

DEAR JESUS, for the last time You stumble and fall to the ground. Shall You ever be able to get up again? The cross crushes You with its weight and the people around wonder if You are not dead already. But no once more Yu climb to Your feet and struggle forward up the hill.

Teach me never to be discouraged even if I keep falling into the same sins but help me to begin again, at once to obey You and to do Your will.

SEÑOR JESUS, has llegado a la cima del cerro el lugar donde vas a morir. Hay una multitud a tu alrededor, se estan riendo de Tí y los malvados te estan molestando. Tu querida Madre y Tus  amigos no pueden acercarse a Tí. Los verdugos te estan maltratando para quitarte Tu vestidura y Tu sangre está corriendo. Es como si cada una de tus crueles heridas estuvieran habriendose por segunda vez. Toda la gente te mira.

Enseñame a  estar dispuesto a olvidarme algunas  veces de los pequeños placeres y vivir solo con lo necesario porque Tu sufriste mucho por mí.

DEAR JESUS, now they are putting nails through Your hands and feet to fasten You to the cross. It hurts me only to prick my finger with a pin. How much more those nails must hurt You! When the executioner tells You stretch out Your hand or Your foot You obey him without saying a word. And I when I am told to do something little, easy thing how often I disobey.

Teach me to be always perfectly obedient because You were so obedient when being nailed to the cross.

Holy Mother pierce me through; In my heart each wound renew, Of my Savior crucified.

SEÑOR JESUS, estás muriendo colgado en la cruz. Tú estás muriendo por mí para que yo vaya al cielo y para que yo pueda ser tu hijo. No estás enojado con los hombres  perversos que te mataron. Los has perdonado y le pediste a Tu Padre que los perdonara tambien. Toda la gente se retira, pienso que algunos sufren por Tí. Tu Santa Madre y Tus amigos estan cerca de Tu cruz. Desearía haber estado con ellos, me hubiera quedado hasta el final para demostrarte cuanto te amo.

Enseñame siempre a perdonar a quien no es amable conmigo porque Tú perdonaste a tus asesinos aún al morir colgado en la cruz.

Two of Your friends bring a ladder and oh, so slowly and carefully they take You down and lay You in the arms of Your Blessed Mother. Her heart is breaking as she looks at the crown of thorns and the nails and all Your dreadful wounds.

Teach me to comfort Your dear Mother now by never hurting You with my sins.

?Como puede resistir el dolor de dejarte ahí?

Pero en tres días, Señor Jesús, vas a resucitar de la muerte glorioso y radiante para Ir de regreso al Cielo para nunca más sufrir.

Enseñame entre los gosos de la tierra a siempre Recordar los gosos del Cielo. Ayúdame a Amarte tanto para que cuando muera esté Felíz contigo para siempre.
