Crucifixion and Death of Jesus
Now there stood by the cross of Jesus,
his mother, and his mother’s sister,
Mary of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalen.
When Jesus therefore had seen his mother
and the disciple standing whom he loved,
he saith to his mother: Woman, behold thy son.
After that, he saith to the disciple: Behold thy mother.
And from that hour, the disciple took her to his own.
Afterwards, Jesus knowing that all things were now
accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, said: I thirst.
Now there was a vessel set there full of vinegar. And
they, putting a sponge full of vinegar and hyssop, put it
to his mouth. Jesus therefore, when he had taken the
vinegar, said: It is consummated.
And bowing his head, he gave up the ghost.
Pray one Our Father and 7 Hail Marys after meditating on the Dolor
"I stood right next to His Cross, and because the nearer
something is to the heart the keener is its stab, so His
suffering was more painful to me than to others. And
when He looked down at me from the Cross, and I looked
up at Him, tears streamed from my eyes like blood from
veins. His suffering became my suffering because His
heart was mine for certain; my Son and I redeemed the
world with one Heart."
"Finally His head dropped, and His beard rested on
His chest. Then my hands became numb. Darkness appeared
before my eyes. My face turned white as a corpse. My ears
could no longer hear, and I could not utter a word. My feet
gave way. And I sank to the ground. But when I arose again
and saw my Son more despised than a person afflicted with
leprosy, I directed my will completely toward Him."
"I heard some say that my Son was a thief; others, that he
was an impostor; others, that no one deserved death more
than he did; and every word was a new sword of grief to my heart."
"Though He was in the midst of such suffering, when He looked down at His
weeping friends, who rather than see Him suffer thus, would have wished to
undergo the same pains themselves, the sorrow which the suffering of His
friends caused Him was far greater than all the bitter pain which He had to
endure in His body and His Heart, for He loved them tenderly."
"I fully understood that everything had happened in accordance with His
Will and that it could not have happened unless He had permitted it. And I
thanked Him for everything. A certain joy was mingled with my grief, for I
perceived how He, who had never sinned, had willed to suffer so much for sinners,
out of His great love."

V. Incline unto my aid, O God!
R. O Lord, make haste to help me!
Pray Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit as it was in the beginning is
now and ever shall be world without end, Amen
I am compassionate to thee, O sorrowful Mother Mary, on account of that martyrdom which
tortured thy magnanimous heart at the death-agony of Jesus. O dearest Mother, through this thy
martyred heart, implore for me the Virtue of Temperance and the Gift of Counsel.
