Jesus is nailed to the Cross

He was pierced for our offenses, crushed for our sins, upon Him was the chastisement that makes us whole, by His stripes we were healed. —Isaiah 53:5

Jesus willingly offers to His Eternal Father the sacrifice of His life for our salvation. He is thrown on the cross, pulled and stretched to make His body fit. He did this willingly for me. Can you feel the pain as they (we) puncture His hands and feet? My suffering Jesus, what my sins have done to You! Nail my heart to Your feet, that it may be united to You until my death so that I will never offend You again. My beloved Jesus, I love You above all things. I am truly sorry for having offended You, and I repent with my whole heart. May I never offend You again. I love You, Jesus. Forgive me.

Prayer: Dear Suffering Lord, what pain You endured for me. My sin is what made You suffer. You did all of this for me. If I was the only person on earth, You, my God, would have done this for me. I am not worthy of such love. I am not worthy of the suffering You and Your mother Mary, whose heart must have been wrenched, endured for me. I love You Jesus and Mary. Help me to be worthy of this love. Help me to bring this love to the poor. Help me to help You in the poor. Let me serve You in the poor. You cry out to Abba; You forgive those who were there to inflict the pain. You forgave those two beside You. And you forgive me, whom You suffered and died for. Let me forgive all those who trespass against me. In Your Passion Lord. Amen

Our Father who art in Heaven . . . . Amen
