Way of the Cross: Thirteenth Station

Deposition or Lamentation: Jesus' body is removed from the cross

V. We adore you, O Christ and praise you.
R. Because by Your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world.


From the Passion according to Mark
And the veil of the Temple was torn in two, from the top to the very bottom. And seeing that he expired in this way, the centurion who stood by, over against him, said, ‘Truly this man was Son of God.’


It was not the temple authorities, or the scribes or the Pharisees, but a Roman centurion who saw Jesus for who He really was, the Son of God. Do you see Him for who He really is? Who do you say Jesus is to you?


Jesus, our Lord, help us to see you for who you really are - the Son of the Living God.


All: Our Father …
Let me mingle tears with thee,
Mourning Him who mourn'd for me,
All the days that I may live.
Find the remaining stations here.
