Stations of the Cross: Another Similarity
The prayer used most during the Stations of the Cross, aside from the Our Father and Hail Mary, is this:
V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless Thee.This Saturday evening, Orthodox Christians of the Byzantine Rite will chant the following prayer as one of the Resurrectional stichera in tone 3 (from the Nassar book, p. 152) :
R. Because by Thy holy Cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.
Thy glorified Cross O Christ, do we worship, and Thy Resurrection do we praise and glorify: for by Thy wounds we were all healed.I just found the (quite) similar wording interesting.
