LORD Jesus, as I walk with you on the way of your cross. For love of you, I am heartily sorry for my sins. I beg of You the grace to make this way of the cross in the spirit of true Penance. I offer this devotion in thanksgiving for your love and in satisfaction for my sins and the sins of the whole world.
LORD Jesus have mercy on us and on the whole world.
