Thirteenth Station: Jesus dies on the cross

Posted on April 8th, 2000

We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you.
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

Luke 23: 44-46
It was now about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour, while the sun’s light failed. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last.
