Stations of the Cross

Station 14: Jesus is Placed in the Tomb

V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless Thee.

R. Because by Thy holy Cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.

Consider how the disciples carried the body of Jesus to bury it, accompanied by His holy Mother, who arranged it in the sepulchre with her own hands. They then closed the tomb, and all withdrew.

Oh, my buried Jesus, I kiss the stone that encloses Thee. But Thou didst rise again the third day. I beseech Thee, by Thy resurrection, make me rise glorious with Thee at the last day, to be always united with Thee in heaven, to praise Thee and love Thee forever. I love Thee, and I repent of ever having offended Thee. Never let me offend Thee again. Grant that I may love Thee always; and then do with me what Thou wilt.

Our FatherHail Mary and Glory Be.


HOW TO GAIN A PLENARY INDULGENCE FOR MAKING THE STATIONS – FROM THE ENCHIRIDION OF INDULGENCES, No. 26:

To gain a plenary indulgence for making the Stations it is necessary to move from Station, to meditate on the sufferings of Our Lord (no specific prayers are required), and to have the intention of gaining the indulgence. (Indulgences can always be applied to the Souls in Purgatory.)
Moreover, “To acquire a plenary indulgence , it is necessary to perform the work to which the indulgence is attached and to fulfill three conditions: sacramental Confession, Eucharistic Communion and prayer for the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff (e.g., one ‘Our Father’ and one ‘Hail Mary’). It is further required that all attachment to sin, even to venial sin, be absent.”
