XI. Jesus is nailed to the Cross

Illustration: Unknown

We adore you O Christ and we praise you
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world

'And they compelled a passer-by, Simon of Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to carry his cross. And they brought him the the place callled Golgotha (which means the place of the skull). And they offered him wine mixed with myrrh; but he did not take it. And they crucified him, and divided his garments among them, casting lots for them, to decide what each should take. And it was the third hour when they crucified him'
Mark 15: 21 - 25
