Prayer Before A Crucifix


BEHOLD, O good and sweetest Jesus, I cast myself upon my knees in Thy sight, and with the most fervent desire of my soul I pray and beseech Thee to impress upon my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope and charity, with true repentance for my sins and a most firm desire of amendment: whilst with deep affection and grief of soul I consider within myself and mentally contemplate Thy five most precious Wounds,
having before mine eyes that which David, the prophet, long ago spoke in Thine Own person concerning Thee, my Jesus: They have pierced My hands and My feet, they have numbered all My bones [Psalm 21, 17, 18]

Next, say the

”Our Father…”

”Hail Mary…”

”Glory Be…”

for the Catholic Church 
and the intentions of the Holy Father.

(A plenary indulgence, under the usual conditions, may be gained by those who shall say this prayer with devotion before an image of our crucified Redeemer. A partial indulgence may also be gained for each devout recitation.)

  1. Our father in heaven, holy be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

    Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed are you among women, blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus,
    Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the time of our death amen.
    All 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 the world with out end. Amen.
