Grotto of Lourdes Shrine Way of the Cross

Way of the Cross

These stations of the Cross were written by Saint John Newman in 1860.

The Venerable John Henry Cardinal Newman, C.O. (February 21, 1801 – August 11, 1890) was an English convert to Roman Catholicism, later made a cardinal, and in 1991 proclaimed ‘Venerable’. In early life he was a major figure in the Oxford Movement to bring the Church of England back to its Catholic roots.


O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee and I detest my sins above every other evil because they displease Thee, my God, Who, in Thy infinite wisdom, art so deserving of all my love and I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace never more to offend Thee and to amend my life.  Amen.
