The Eighth Station: Let
us meditate on Jesus consoling the women of Jerusalem.
The Lord saved the whole world through the Cross.
◊ Jesus Christ, we adore You and praise You.
The Lord of Love Who consoles us even while suffering
○ Lord, You love us so much and console us even while
You feel like faint and have difficulty in opening Your eyes because of
the pains of being poked with iron sticks, the pains of being hit by rocks
and being struck, the pains of the whole body being torn apart and the
bones being crushed, and drag Your feet on the ground carrying Your heavy
Body and receiving countless ridicules, mockery and whipping.
● The Lord and the Blessed Mother always wait for us
all, stretching out Their hands, because They want all to convert and be
saved, even the most wicked sinners who fell into the snares of the devil
who led them to practice selfish love that excludes others because of
their self-centeredness and heartlessness. Let us all realize that the
time of judgment by (God's) justice is not far off and remain awake and
pray as little souls at every moment. (Meditate for a while.)
○ "Do not weep over my tears, but look at my Son
Jesus and console Him Who wears the crown of thorns and sheds blood and
sweat" (The Blessed Mother's message on August 11, 1985)
As now is the time immediately preceding the descent
of the punishment, as God's just anger has reached its fullness because of
the sins being committed recklessly, may the above words of the Blessed
Mother be fully realized. Amen.
Our Father, Hail Mary,
and Glory be.
◘ Mother, we ask you to engrave the Lord's Wounds
deeply into our hearts.
