The Thirteenth Station - Jesus is Taken Down from the Cross

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

Standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.. The soldiers came to Jesus and when they saw he was already dead, they did not break his legs. But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once there came out blood and water. After this Joseph of Arimathea... asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus.

Let me mingle tears with thee
Mourning him who mourned for me,
All the days that I may live.
