Our Morning Offering – 4 March – Prayer Before a Crucifix

Our Morning Offering – 4 March – First Friday of Lent

Prayer Before a Crucifix

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 Most Precious 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.”
Amen

This Prayer is often said after Holy Mass before the Crucifix in the Church. The faithful receive a Partial Indulgence but on the Fridays of Lent, the Indulgence is a Plenary Indulgence, under the usual conditions.

Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and bless you 🙏

    1. Hmm – I can only think offhand of the Pieta – St Bridget of Swede, the entire booklet and then the 15 Prayers therein, of course. This is a booklet full of riches for the type of mediation you seek.
      I know those who have for years done the meditation on the Precious Blood and through that Blood, which they have collected drop-by-drop in their souls, they have concentrated on different vices and sins.
