Closing Prayer:

Prayer to Jesus Christ Crucified

My good and dear Jesus, 

I kneel before You, 

asking You most earnestly 

to engrave upon my heart 

a deep and lively faith, hope, and charity, 

with true repentance for my sins, 

and a firm resolve to make amends. 

As I reflect upon Your five wounds, 

and dwell upon them 

with deep compassion and grief, 

I recall, good Jesus, 

the words the Prophet David spoke 

long ago concerning Yourself: 

“They pierced My hands and My feet; 

they have numbered all My bones.”
