Jesus is Placed in the Sepulchre
V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise
R. Because by Thy holy cross Thou hast redeemed the world.
Consider that the disciples carried the body
of Jesus to bury it, accompanied by His holy Mother, who arranged it in
the sepulchre with her own hands. They then closed the tomb and all withdrew.
Ah, my buried Jesus, I kiss the stone that
encloses Thee. But Thou didst rise again the third day. I beseech Thee,
by Thy resurrection, make me rise glorious with Thee at the last day,
to be always united with Thee in heaven, to praise Thee and love Thee
forever. I love Thee, and I repent of ever 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
|Virgo virginum praeclara,
Mihi jam non sis amara;
Fac me tecum plangere.
|Virgin of all virgins best!
Listen to my fond request:
Let me share thy grief divine.
