|The fourteenth station- Jesus is placed in the tomb|
Almighty God, we wait in the darkness before the dawn of your Son, remembering and blessing him, now and forever.
In stillness the earth pauses, and awaits the resurrection: hear our prayers, O Comforter.
We turn our faces toward hope, awaiting the coming of the third day: we know You share our sorrows and pain.
Help us renounce the evils that chain us, O Lord: roll away the stone of our hearts, we pray.
Lord Christ, you prayed forgiveness for your enemies even upon the cross: help us so renounce vengeance and strife.
Bless those for whom we pray, O Merciful One, and pour your comfort like a balm over them.
