Prayer Before A Crucifix

 

Back to Treasury

 

 

Look down upon me good and gentle Jesus, while before Thy face I humbly kneel and with burning soul pray and beseech Thee to fix deep in my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope and charity, true contrition for my sins and a firm purpose of amendment, while I contemplate with great love and tender pity Thy Five Wounds, pondering over them within me and calling to mind the words which David Thy Prophet said of Thee my Jesus, "They have pierced My Hands and My Feet, they have numbered all My Bones." ( Ps 21, 17-18 ) 

 

Amen.
