"We adore you, O Christ and
we bless you.
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world."
Surely He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered Him stricken by God, smitten by Him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed.
By this second fall you confirm how weak we are, help us Lord to overcome our weaknesses with the strength of your sufferings. Teach us how to love good and to hate evil.
