We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you. (Genuflect)
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
When he was insulted, he did not answer back with an insult; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but placed his hopes in God, the righteous Judge. Christ himself carried our sins in his body to the cross, so that we might die to sin and live for righteousness. It is by his wounds that you have been healed. (1 Peter 2:23-24)
O Jesus, falling again under the burden of our sins, and of your sufferings for our sins, how often have we grieved you by our repeated falls into sin! May we rather die than ever offend you again.
Our Father.., Hail Mary.., Glory Be..
Have mercy on us, O Lord.
Have mercy on us.
Holy Mother, pierce me through!
In my heart, each wound renew,
Of my Savior crucified.
Prostrate on the dust he crumbled,
Flogged in body he resembled,
All our brothers poor and scorned.
