Prayers for the Holy Father Pope Francis
Prayer to Our Lady of Sorrows
Two of his disciples placed him in the arms of his afflicted Mother.
Jesus is finally overwhelmed with suffering, bowed his head and died.
Jesus offered the sacrifice of his life for our salvation.
Jesus was violently stripped by the executioners.
Jesus was weak in the extreme when he fell the third time
The women wept with compassion at seeing Jesus
Veronica, seeing Jesus so ill-used, wiped his face.
Consider the second fall of Jesus under the Cross; a fall which renews the pain of all the wounds in his head and members.
When Jesus falls the first time, he is so weakened he could scarcely walk
