Regarding the Wounds with which Christ Resurrected
by Father Alonso de Andrade, 1878 - Daily Meditations on the Mysteries of Our Holy Faith, on the Life of Christ and of the Saints, Part Two

First Point. Contemplate today, Friday of the Passion, Christ, our Lord risen and glorious, with the signs of His Passion, each one more resplandecent than the Sun; look at the glory that His Eternal Father gave Him for all that he suffered for men; considering that, while He could have risen without those signs, as He did without those of the stripes and of the thorns, and those made on His Divine Face by the buffets they gave Him, He wanted to keep the Wounds of the the nails and the spear, because they were signs of His Cross by which, and in which, He consummated our Redemption. From these you are to draw great courage and consolation in your sorrows and labours, remembering that they are garments of Divine Glory, and the means to attain it; and that, in a few days they will lead you to the eternal repose, in which you will enjoy, eternal blessing.

Second Point. Consider the causes why Christ preserved the Wounds of His Passion on His Sacred Body after His Resurrection, which were most advantageous to awaken our memory, and refresh our recollection of His Passion within us, and leading us to understand that, as the Apostle Saint John tells says in his Apocalypse: in Heaven the Angels and the blessed will sing canticles of His Passion, so here on earth His chosen ones should also sing them, having His Passion always present; meditating on it and contemplating it, as there is nothing more pleasant and agreeable to the Lord. Ask God for the grace to meditate on His Passion as you should, with the tenderness and gratitude for such a great mercy, as you have the obligation to do so.

Third Point. Consider another reason Saint Bernard brings us, which is so that He can intercede for men before the Eternal Father, showing His Open Wounds, and asking through them the forgiveness of your sins, and that they may impart good graces and mercies. O Lord, what thanks will I give You for the love You have for me, since not once, but many times, You have wanted to open the Wounds of Your Sacred Body for me! O my soul! Look at what an Advocate you have before the presence of God, and the signature signed by His Blood which He presents in His Tribunal for you! Pray with Him and offer those Most Thrice Precious Wounds in satisfaction for your sins, and ask the Eternal Father through them to grant you new mercies, as their value is infinite, no matter how much you ask and receive, they are worth more. And ask for you and for the entire whole Church abundance of celestial goods; let the Wounds of Christ supply with their value what is lacking in your own.

Fourth Point. Consider what Saint Paul says, who carried, stamped on his body, the Wounds of Christ, and who, by the mortification and penance he carried out, rendered himself as the Lord's own image. He did all this well because he honored himself by them, rejoicing more in the ignominies of Christ’s than in the honors of the world; and also because of the appreciated memory he always carried with him of so signal a benefit. To do this I must always look into the mirror image of the Redeemer so as to transform myself into Him, and make my body a living stamp of His, and endeavor with His example to suffer the Cross and death, if it were necessary to do so, for His service.

OUR FATHER

Our Father, Who Art In Heaven
Hallowed Be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy Will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
Liberate us from all temptation[*]
And deliver us from all evil. Amen



[*] Liberate us is in keeping with the original Latin text.
       God usually does not "lead us" to temptation
       (unless we are tested),
       but gives us the grace to overcome and/or resist it

HAIL MARY

Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art though among women,
And blessed is the fruit
Of thy womb, Jesus.
 
Holy Mary, Mary of God
Pray for us sinners
Now, and in the hour
Of our death. Amen

APOSTLE'S CREED

I believe in God, the Father Almighty Creator of Heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ, His Only Son, our Lord;
Who was conceived by the
[work and grace of the] Holy Ghost,[*]
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into the Dead.[**]
On the third day, He rose again;
He ascended into Heaven,
And sits at the right hand of God,
the Father Almighty.
From thence he shall come to judge
the living and the dead.
 
I believe in the Holy Ghost,[*]
The Holy Catholic Church,
The communion of saints,
The forgiveness of sins.
The resurrection of the body,
And life everlasting. Amen


[*] Holy Ghost: may be substituted with the current Holy Spirit.
[**] the Dead: "inferi", the underworld or the dead in Latin.

GLORIA

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost[*],
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen

DE PROFUNDIS

Out of the depths I have cried to Thee, O Lord:
Lord, hear my voice.
Let Thine ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplication.

If thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities:
Lord, who shall abide it.
For with Thee there is merciful forgiveness:
and because of Thy law,
I have waited for Thee, O Lord.

My soul hath waited on His word:
my soul hath hoped in the Lord.
From the morning-watch even until night,
let Israel hope in the Lord.

For with the Lord there is mercy:
and with Him plenteous redemption.
And He shall redeem Israel
from all her iniquities.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost[*],
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen

[*] Holy Ghost: may be substituted with the current Holy Spirit.

"Requiem aeternam" (Eternal Rest) three times a day.
Pope Leo XIII, February 3, 1888)


Let us pray:
O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all
the faithful, we beseech Thee to grant
to the souls of Thy servants the remission
of their sins, so that by our prayers
they may obtain pardon for which they long.
O Lord, who lives and reigns,
world without end. Amen

May they rest in peace. Amen

PADRE NUESTRO

Padre Nuestro,
que estas en los Cielos
Santificado sea Tu Nombre;
Venga a nosotros tu Reino;
Hágase Tu Voluntad
en la tierra como en el cielo.
Danos hoy nuestro pan de cada día;
Perdona nuestras ofensas,
Como también nosotros
perdonamos a los que nos ofenden,
No nos dejes caer en la tentación,
y líbranos del mal. Amén

CREDO

Creo en Dios, Padre Todopoderoso,
Creador del cielo y de la tierra.
Creo en Jesucristo,
Su único Hijo, Nuestro Señor,
Que fue concebido por obra
y gracia del Espíritu Santo,
Nació de la Santa María Virgen;
Padeció bajo el poder de Poncio Pilato,
Fue crucificado, muerto y sepultado,
Descendió a los infiernos,
Al tercer día resucitó de entre los muertos,
Subió a los cielos
Y está sentado a la derecha de Dios,
Padre Todopoderoso.
Desde allí ha de venir a juzgar
a los vivos y a los muertos.

Creo en el Espíritu Santo,
La Santa Iglesia Católica,
La comunión de los santos,
El perdón de los pecados,
La resurrección de la carne
Y la vida eterna. Amén

DE PROFUNDIS

Desde lo hondo a Ti grito, Señor; Señor,
escucha mi voz;
Estén Tus oidos atentos
a la voz de mi súplica.

Si llevas cuenta de los delitos, Señor,
¿quién podrá resistir?
Pero de ti procede el perdón,
y así infundes respeto.
Mi alma espera en el Señor.

Espera en su palabra;
mi alma aguarda al Señor,
más que el centinela la aurora.
Aguarda Israel al Señor.

Como el centinela la aurora;
porque del Señor viene la misericordia.
la redención copiosa;
y Él redimirá a Israel de todos sus delitos.

Gloria al Padre, al Hijo y al
Espíritu Santo,
como es desde el principio,
es ahora y será por los siglos de los siglos.
Amén
