Pro-Life Stations of the Cross – Closing Prayer

Thank you for joining us in prayer and reflection on the Stations of the Cross the last 14 days. Without the power of God’s grace, the flood of immorality, false thinking and grave sin cannot be overcome. A culture drenched in blood and glorified in lust and pride desperately needs the purifying, transforming grace of Christ. 

Prolife Stations

Closing Prayer

Lord, we have followed step by step the way of the Cross of murdered unborn children, victims of our time. With these steps we have kept in step with You and have kept You company on Your Holy way of the Cross, because You have said, “Whatsoever you do for the least of my brothers, you do for Me.”

Have mercy on mankind in our day and time.  It is You, You alone, who can put an end to these evil works of the devil.  The souls of murdered innocent life are crying out to You.  Lord, have mercy.  Amen.

8th Station of the Cross: Jesus meets the Women of Jerusalem

8th Station

We adore You O Christ and we praise You, because by Your Holy Cross, You have redeemed the world.

Lord Jesus, You turn aside the tender pity of the women of Jerusalem; in Your mercy You warn them of the sufferings which they themselves will have to face. 

Reflection: There are women today who are not ready to accept Christ’s grace, who place self-love above the welfare of their children, who boast of their abortions; but Christ is thinking precisely of those children whose parents give scandal, children growing up in broken homes, children who suffer in a time of abundance and luxury.  And we should ask:  What about ourselves? 

Prayer: Have mercy on mankind in our day and time. It is You Lord, and You alone who can put an end to these evil works of the devil.

6th Station of the Cross: Veronica Wipes the Face of Jesus

6th Station

We adore You O Christ and we praise You, because by Your Holy Cross, You have redeemed the world.

Veronica, a bystander along the road to Calvary, sees Jesus’ suffering. She does not care what people might think or say; she simply follows her impulse and steps forward to help You, Lord.

Today a majority of doctors and nurses still want to help and save the unborn life they see threatened by death.  They join the fight against abortion and refuse to take part in murder.

Reflection: We should permit no discrimination against such doctors and nurses.  Nor should we permit the mass media to revile them for helping women to carry their children until birth.

Prayer: Lord Jesus crucified, help us all walk in your steps.

4th Station of the Cross: Jesus meets His Afflicted Mother

4th Station

We adore you, O Christ and we praise You, because by Your Holy Cross, you have redeemed the world.

This meeting of Jesus and His Mother should deepen our faith and arouse our conscience.  Ever since the prophecy of Simeon in the temple, “A sword of sorrow shall pierce your soul,” Mary had a forboding of this most tragic moment of her life.

Reflection:  We want to pray, Lord, for those women who in a tragic moment of their life, turned to abortion as the only way out, resulting in physical suffering and the burden of moral guilt.

Prayer:  Have mercy on us O Lord, have mercy on us!

2nd Station of the Cross – Jesus Takes up His Cross

2nd Station

We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You, because by Your Holy Cross, You have redeemed the world.

We know, Lord, that children are a source of joy and happiness; but they can also be a burden and a cross.  They require many sacrifices on our part: our favorite entertainment, the books we would like to read, that new car, a vacation trip, the second income that a mother might have earned.

Children demand sacrifices of time, money, ease, and pleasure.  They demand patience and consideration. They demand love at all times, in sickness and in health, and especiallywhen they feel alienated from their family and friends. 

Reflection: How willing are we to bear the cross in our own life, especially when children are involved? Do we look for a painless Christianity without the Cross, the false Christianity without sacrifice that is sought by so many today?  

Prayer:  Lord Jesus crucified, have mercy on us!
