Fourteenth Station: Jesus is laid in the tomb



We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you

because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.


Bible Reading – Mark 15. 46-47


Joseph placed the body in a tomb which had been dug out of solid rock.  Then he rolled a large stone across the entrance.  Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joseph were watching and saw where the body of Jesus was placed.




The door is shut now,

and the world sighs and waits.

And we wait in night’s darkness,

longing for the morning,

longing for the light.




For all who are waiting.

or all who are longing for light:

Lord, in your mercy

hear our prayer.
