Jesus Falls the Second Time
V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise
R. Because by Thy holy cross Thou hast redeemed the world.
Consider the second fall of Jesus under the
cross—a fall which renews the pain of all the wounds of the head
and members of our afflicted Lord.
My most gentle Jesus, how many times Thou
hast pardoned me, and how many times have I fallen again, and begun again
to offend Thee! Oh, by the merits of this new fall, give me the necessary
helps to persevere in Thy grace until death. Grant that in all temptations
which assail me I may always commend myself to Thee. I love Thee, Jesus,
my love, with my whole heart; I repent of having offended Thee. Never
permit me to offend Thee again. Grant that I may love Thee always; and
then do with me what Thou wilt.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to
|Vidit suum dulcem Natum
Dum emisit spiritum.
|For the sins of His own nation
Saw Him hang in desolation
Till His spirit forth He sent.
