13. Jesus Is Taken From The Cross

Jesus did not descend from the Cross, but remained on it till His death. He has truly died. A profound sacrifice, complete. He has fallen into God's hands. When taken down, He rested on the bosom of His beloved Mother as He had so often done in life. Jesus' lifeless body lays in his mother's arms.
Persevere in your good resolutions, and do not flee from the cross. For he who perseveres till the end shall be saved.

O Master grant that I may never seek
so much to be consoled as to console,
as Mary Our Blessed Mother
did at the foot of the cross.

My Jesus, pardon and mercy through the merits of thy sacred wounds.
