12. Jesus dies on the cross
adore you, O Christ, and we bless you,
because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, while the sun’s light failed; and the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Then Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, ‘Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.’ Having said this, he breathed his last.
She watched them die, her husband and her child; brutally murdered in front of her. No one can come back from that.
Lord, we remember all those who have died
due to lack of food or water;
those who have died through violence and conflict,
or while they were fleeing;
those who have died during floods, storms or bushfires;
those who have died from infectious disease.
We remember those we have loved
who have gone before us.
