PRAYER BEFORE A CRUCIFIX

Look down upon  me, good and gentle Jesus,

while before your face

I humbly knell,

and with burning soul

pray and implore You

to fix deep in my heart

lively sentiments of faith,

hope and charity,

true contrition for my sins,

and a firm purpose of amendment,

while I contemplate with great love

and tender pity Your five wounds,

pondering over them within me,

having in mind the words

which David Your prophet

said of You, my Jesus:

“They pierced My hands and My feet;

they numbered all My bones.”

FOR THE INTENTION OF THE HOLY FATHER

Our Father,

who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy name.

Thy Kingdom come.

Thy will be done

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,

and forgive our trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us,

and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

Hail, Mary, full of grace,

the Lord is with thee:

blessed art thou among women,

and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,

Jesus.

Holy Mary,

Mother of God,

pray for us sinners, now,

and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

Glory be to the Father,

and to the Son,

and to the Holy Spirit.

As it was in the beginning,

is now,

and ever shall be,

world without end.

Amen
