Jesus is Stripped of His Garments
V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise
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.
My innocent Jesus, by the merits of the torment
which Thou hast felt, help me to strip myself of all affection to things
of earth, in order that I may place all my love in Thee, Who art so worthy
of my love. I love Thee, O Jesus, 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
|Sancta Mater, istud agas,
Crucifixi fige plagas
Cordi meo valide.
|Holy Mother! pierce me through.
In my heart each wound renew
Of my Saviour crucified.
