We adore you, o Christ, and we praise you because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

Jesus advances a little and fell prostrate in prayer, saying: "Father, if it is possible let this cup pass from me,yet not as I will, but as you will."
Father in heaven, your Son, Jesus Christ consciously offered his life for the redemption of the entire world. Strengthen us in our baptismal resolutions by which we renounced sin, so that through the passion of this life's sufferings we might rise to a new life of joyful service free of all selfishness. Amen
