V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless Thee.
R. Because by Thy Holy Cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.
Consider the violence with which the executioners stripped Jesus.
His inner garments adhered to His torn flesh, and they dragged them
off so roughly that the skin came with them. Have compassion on
your Saviour thus cruelly treated.
LET US PRAY
My innocent Jesus, by the merits of the torment You have felt, help
me to strip myself of all affection to things of earth,
in order that I may place all my love in You, who are so worthy of my love.
I love You, O Jesus, with my whole heart; I repent of having
offended You. Never permit me to offend You again. Grant that I may
love You always; and then do with me what You will.
Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, have mercy on us.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Dear Jesus, by the merits of your passion and cross, we present to you all our petitions.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
