Then say the Our Father, the Hail Mary, and the Glory be to the Father. After the final station, this prayer, adapted from one composed by Saint Alphonsus, might be said: “O Jesus Christ, my Lord, with what great love you traveled the painful road which led to your death — and how often have I abandoned you. But now I love you with my whole soul, and because I love you, I am sincerely sorry for having offended you. My Jesus, pardon me, and permit me to accompany you on this journey. You died for love of me, and it is my wish, O my dearest Redeemer, to be willing to die for love of you. O my beloved Jesus, in your love I wish to live, and in your love I wish to die. Amen.”
