  • Prayer
    Holy and everliving God,
    look kindly
    on me
    for whom our Saviour Jesus Christ
    was willing to be betrayed,
    and to suffer death
    upon the cross;
    help me to grow
    into the fullness
    of new life in Christ
    who now is alive and glorified
    with you and the Holy Spirit,
    one God, now and for ever. 
    Amen.

Crucifed Jesus, strengthen Us


In Your own feeling of abandonment,
we see those abandoned by their families,
by society, by attention and by solidarity.
In Your body, sacrificed, ripped and torn,
we see the body of our brothers
who have been abandoned along the way,

disfigured by our negligence and our indifference.
In Your thirst Lord,
we see the thirst of Your merciful Father,

who desired to embrace,
forgive and save all of humanity.

In You, Divine Love,
we see even today, before our very eyes,

and often with our silence and complicity,
our persecuted brothers and sisters,

decapitated, crucified for their faith in You.
Imprint in our heart,
Lord, sentiments of faith, hope and charity,

of sorrow for our sins, and lead us to repent for our sins that have crucified You.
Lead us to transform our conversion with words
into a conversion of life and works.
Help us to preserve within us
a living memory of Your disfigured face,

so that we may never forget the terrible price
You paid to free us.

Crucifed Jesus, strengthen in us a faith
that does not collapse

in the face of temptations;
awaken in us the hope that does get lost

following the temptations of the world.
Preserve in us the charity
that is not fooled by the corruption of worldliness.

Teach us that the cross is the way to the resurrection.
Teach us that Good Friday
is the way to the Easter of light.

Teach us that God never forgets any of his children,
and never tires of forgiving us
and embracing us with His infinite mercy.

But also teach us to never tire of asking Him
for forgiveness

and believing in the boundless mercy of the Father.
Soul of Christ, sanctify us!
Body of Christ, save us!
Blood of Christ, inebriate us!
Water from the side of Christ, wash us!
Passion of Christ, comfort us!
O Good Jesus, hear us!
Hide us in your wounds!
Do not allow us to separate from You!
From the evil enemy defend us!
In the hour of our death, call us!
And command us to come to You,
so that we may praise You with Your Saints forever and ever.
AMEN.

Pope Francis
