The Fourteenth Station - Jesus is Laid in the Tomb

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

When Pilate learned from the centurion that Jesus was dead, he granted the body to Joseph. And he bought a linen shroud, and taking him down, wrapped him in the linen shroud, and laid him in a tomb which he had hewn out of the rock; and he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb. Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses saw where he was laid.

While my body here decays,
May my soul your goodness praise,
Safe in paradise with you.
