Jesus dies on the cross

Jesus dies on the crossLeader: We adore thee, O Christ, and we praise thee.
All:  Because by thy holy cross thou hast redeemed the world.

Reader: 
“When the sixth hour came, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.  At the ninth hour Jesus cried in a loud voice, ‘Eloi, eloi lamma sabachthani’. But Jesus gave a loud cry and breathed his last.” Mark 15:33,36b

“Without beauty, without majesty, we saw him, no looks to attract our eyes, a thing despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and familiar with suffering, a man to make people screen their faces, despised, of no account.  Harshly dealt with, he bore it humbly, he never opened his mouth, like a lamb dumb before its shearers, never opening his mouth”. Isaiah 53:2-4, 6-7
