O God of Peace, as we quiet our hearts and minds from our busy lives and open ourselves to Your presence, may we encounter Your transforming Love and made be anew for You and for others.
O God of Courage, as we reflect on these steps that our Lord Jesus Christ walked on his pathway of Love, may we not only re-enact these moments but re-live their meaning in our daily lives with You and each other.
O God of Love, may we encounter You as we walk in the footprints of our Lord Jesus Christ and on our journey from the kingdom of me to the kingdom of God and the kingdom of us.
O God of Hope, may we truly live in those moments on the Way of the Cross and live as though Your Loving Presence is alive even in the shadow of the Resurrection or the fifteenth station.
We ask these things not out of fear but out of gratitude for Your love. Amen.
