The Passion according to St Luke
A Meditation for Good Friday April 2010

Hymn 549 When I survey the wondrous cross

Opening Prayer

Almighty Father
look with mercy on this your family
for which our Lord Jesus Christ
was content to be betrayed
and given up into the hands of wicked men
and to suffer death upon the cross
who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit
one God now and for ever
Amen

Then we say together
Holy God
holy and strong
holy and immortal
have mercy on us

Before each meditation is said the following
Priest "We adore you O Christ and we bless you"
People "because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world"

1 Are you the King of the Jews? 23 v3

2 I find no basis for an accusation against this man 23 v4

3 Neither has Herod for he has sent him back to us 23 v15

4 Away with this fellow! Release Barabbas for us! 23 v18

5 Crucify, crucify him! 23 v21

6 Why what evil has he done? 23 v22

7 Daughters of Jerusalem do not weep for me . . . 23 v28

8 Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing. 23 v34

9 He saved others; let him save himself if he is the Messiah of God, his chosen one. 23 v35

10 Are you not the Messiah? Save yourself and us! 23 v39

11 Jesus remember me when you come into your kingdom. 23 v42

12 Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise. 23 v43

13 Father into your hands I commend my spirit. 23 v46

14 Certainly this man was innocent. 23 v47

Closing prayer
Most merciful God
who by the death and resurrection of your son Jesus Christ
delivered and saved mankind:
grant that by faith in him who suffered on the cross
we may triumph in the power of his victory
through Jesus Christ our Lord
Amen
