13th Station – Jesus Is Lowered From The Cross

The following excerpts come from The Way of the Cross written by Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen and published by Our Sunday Visitor (1982).

JESUS IS LOWERED FROM THE CROSS

“Taken down from the cross of execution, His body was placed in the arms of His mother, who still recalled the first time she held Him in her arms at Bethlehem. “

“Between Bethlehem and Calvary, dear Mary, lies the chasm of sin.  Be my intecessor at the throne of justice and mercy, O Mother of Sorrow and Help of Sinners.”
