A PRAYER IN COMMEMORATION OF THE HOLY SUFFERINGS OF JESUS CHRIST

O God, Who for the redemption of the world
didst will to be born amongst men,
to be circumcised,
to be rejected by the Jews,
to be betrayed by the traitor Judas with a kiss,
to be bound with cords,
to be led to slaughter as an innocent lamb,
to be shamelessly exposed to the gaze of Annas, Caiphas, Pilate and Herod,
to be accused by false witnesses,
to be tormented by scourges and insults,
defiled with spitting,
crowned with thorns,
smitten with blows,
struck with a reed,
blindfolded, stripped of Thy garments,
fastened to the Cross with nails,
lifted on the Cross,
reckoned among thieves,
given gall and vinegar to drink
and wounded with a spear;
do Thou, O Lord, by these Thy most holy sufferings,
upon which I unworthily meditate,
and by Thy holy Cross and death,
deliver me from the pains of hell,
and vouchsafe to bring me where Thou didst bring the penitent thief
who was crucified with Thee,
Who with the Father
and the Holy Ghost livest and reignest,
one God, world without end.

Amen.

Say 5 times the following prayers:

Our Father…

Glory Be…
