Leader: Lord Jesus, your Cross is our only hope. The love that compelled you take the steps to Calvary is the very love that conquered sin and death forever throughout your glorious resurrection. Each time we follow the way of your passion, we learn again that you redeem our steps, pick us up from our falls, and unite our sacrifices and sufferings with yours in the transforming power of your Cross. Led and redeemed by you, our savior, may we die only to rise with you in glory.
Leader: We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you,
All: Because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world!
Leader: May almighty God bless us and keep us, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,
