Stations of the Cross Closing Prayer

Jesus dies on the cross in this image from the Stations of the Cross booklet to be used at Rome’s Colosseum April 18. The plight of sexually abused children, victims of domestic violence, prisoners, the abandoned elderly, the unemployed and immigrants will be given a voice in this year’s Stations of the Cross presided over by Pope Francis.

My Jesus, my savior, we are now at the end of the Way of the Cross, and your ultimate triumph.
You showed in your great passion, true grace, love and mercy in the face of cruelty and violence.
Help me to embrace and trust my Father’s will as you did.
Let me be the face of your peace for others as you taught.
Help me to become fully alive in faith every day in the true Spirit of our God.
You, Jesus, are truly my model of undying love.
Because of your painful passion, sorrowful death and ultimate resurrection, you have recreated the world to be one with our God.
In my faith, I pray, remake me to now carry on your love for the unloved, your mercy to those who hurt me, your compassion to those who are without necessity.
Help me to know that I am enough for you, so that I will have the courage to become who you have created and saved me to be in this life.
Help me to begin to fulfill your plan for the Kingdom of God here today.
Allow me to be your witness until this earthly life is finished, when I am completely with you again.
Let me always show less of me, and more of you.
Praise be always for the greater honor and glory of God.
