Stations of the Cross - THE WAY OF THE CROSS
Image Jesus, You fall for the first time beneath the cross.

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

The cross is heavy. You are already wounded and physically weakened. You fall beneath the cross and stand up again because You have accepted the will of the Father. Thank You, Jesus.

Grant me, 0 Jesus, the strength to reject all that makes me fall into evil and sin and all that takes away my peace. Grant me a sensitive heart that I may notice those who have fallen and that I may know how to help them. I present to You all those who have fallen because of me and my behaviour. Grant that they may forgive me so that I may follow You.

Our Father... Hail Mary... Glory Be...

Have mercy on us, O Lord!
Have mercy on us!

TOTALLY YOURS

TOTUS TUUS

Immaculate Conception, Mary, my Mother.

Live in me. Act in me. Speak in and through me.

Think your thoughts in my mind. Love, through my heart.

Give me your dispositions and feelings.

Teach, lead and guide me to Jesus.

Correct, enlighten and expand my thoughts and behavior.

Possess my soul. Take over my entire personality and life.

Replace it with yourself.

Incline me to constant adoration and thanksgiving.

Pray in me and through me.

Let me live in you and keep me in this union always.
 
-  Pope John Paul II

MARIAN CONSECRATION

I, (name), a faithless sinner, renew and ratify today in your hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism; I renounce forever Satan, his pomps and works; and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faithful to Him than I have ever been before.
In the presence of all the heavenly court, I choose you this day for my Mother and Queen. I deliver and consecrate to you, as your slave, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions, past, present, and future; leaving to you the entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs to me, without exception, according to your good pleasure, for the greater glory of God, in time and eternity. Amen.
-  St. Louis Marie de Montfort
