Jesus Christ Crucified: The Power and Wisdom of God and the Demonstration of his Love.

Prayer before the Cross
We adore you O Christ, and we bless you, because by your Holy Cross, you have redeemed the world.   Look down upon me, good and gentle Jesus, while before Your face I humbly pray, and with burning soul ask You to fix deep in my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope and love, true contrition for my sins and a firm purpose of renewal; With great sorrow and tender pity, I contemplate your five wounds and call to mind the words of David, the prophet: “They have pierced my hands and my feet; I can count all my bones”   Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
