THE FOURTH STATION
Jesus is met by his Blessed Mother
Jesus carrying his cross, was weak from his fall. He was met by his Mother along the way. Her heart was pierced by the sword of suffering. Jesus spoke gentle words of comfort to her. When our hearts have been pierced by suffering, he speaks words of comfort to us.
Jesus, still burdened by the cross and the fall along the way.
Is met by his Blessed Mother on that sorrowful day.
What a meeting that must have been.
Jesus comforted his Mother as he bore the burden for sin.
Jesus! By your compassion towards your Mother, have mercy on us.
By your holy wounds, heal, restore and forgive us.
Speak words of comfort and give us deliverance from sin.
Blessed Savior, make us whole again.
Jesus, you were met by your Blessed Mother along the way.
With Blessed Mary, I weep for you on that sorrowful day.
Sorrow tore at her heart, and sorrow for sin tears within me.
I know that out of compassion, you suffered to set me free.
