Say one

Say one "Hail Mary..."

O Jesus! I remember the very bitter pain

You did suffer when the executioners

nailed Your Sacred Hands and Feet to the Cross

by blow after blow with big blunt nails,

and, not finding You in a sad enough state,

to satisfy their cruelty they enlarged Your Wounds,

and added pain to pain,

stretching Your Body on the Cross

and dislocated Your Bones by pulling Them on all sides.

I beg of You by the memory

of this most loving suffering of the Cross

to grant me the grace to love You.
