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.

The women who had come from Galilee followed. 

Luke 23: 55

Hail Mary full of grace, Our Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women
and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death. 


Jesus Christ Crucified.
Have Mercy on Us.
