STATION 10 - Jesus is stripped of His Garments
We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee, because by Thy holy cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.
When Our Savior had arrived on Calvary, He was cruelly despoiled of His garments. How painful this must have been because they adhered to His wounded and torn body, and with them parts of His bloody skin were removed! All the wounds of Jesus were renewed. Jesus was despoiled of His garments that He might die possessed of nothing; how happy will I also die after laying aside my former self with all evil desires and sinful inclinations!
Induce me, O Jesus, to lay aside my former self and to be renewed according to Thy will and desire. I will not spare myself, however painful this should be for me: despoiled of things temporal, of my own will, I desire to die, in order to live for Thee forever.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be…
Lord Jesus, crucified, have mercy on us!
Make me feel as thou hast felt;
Make my soul to glow and melt
With the love of Christ, my Lord.
