Reclining at table with his disciples, Jesus was deeply troubled and testified, “Amen, amen, I say to you, one of you will betray me.”

“Master, who is it?”
Jesus answered,
“It is the one to whom I hand the morsel after I have dipped it.”
So he dipped the morsel and took it and handed it to Judas,
son of Simon the Iscariot.
After Judas took the morsel, Satan entered him.

The Tenth Station – Jesus is Stripped of His Garments

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

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

Arriving at Calvary, Jesus was cruelly deprived of His garments.  How painful the stripping must have been, because the garments adhered to His mangled body, so that in removing them parts of the flesh were torn away.  Jesus is deprived of His garments that He may die possessed of nothing.  How happy shall not I die aside my evil habits and tendencies!

Help me O Jesus, to amend my life.  Let it be renewed according to Thy will and desire.  However painful the correction may be to me, I will not spare myself.  With the assistance of Thy grace, I will refrain from all sinful pleasure and vain amusement, that I may die happy and live forever.

Our Father…; Hail Mary…; Glory be to the Father…

V.  Lord Jesus, Crucified.

R.  Have Mercy on us.

Sung…Holy Mother, pierce me through; In my heart each wound renew; Of my Savior crucified.

Do something great for our Lord today…pray for the forgiveness of your sins.  Pray for an end to this virus.  Pray for all who willingly put their lives at risk in order for us to have the services we all need to live.  God bless all of us.

God’s will, not mine, be done.

Be not afraid; just have faith.

Jesus, I trust in You.

He must increase; I must decrease.

Lord, if You wish, You can make me clean.

But you man of God chose righteousness, devotion, faith, love, patience and gentleness.  Compete well for the faith.

Eternal God, in Whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion – inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and extend Your mercy in us so that in difficult moments, we may not despair nor become despondent but with great confidence, submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.
