REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary,

that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,

implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence,

I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother;

to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate,

despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

Noli, Mater Verbi, verba mea despicere; sed audi propitia et exaudi.

Aid us from on high, most valiant defender, In this conflict with the powers of darkness, and even as of old, You did rescue the Child Jesus from the peril of His life, So now defend God's Holy Church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity. Shield us ever under your patronage, that, following your example and strengthened by your help, we may live a holy life, die a happy death, and attain everlasting bliss in Heaven.

Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
By St. Maximilian Kolbe


O Immaculata, Queen of heaven and earth, refuge of sinners and our most loving Mother, God has willed to entrust the entire order of mercy to you. I, (Name…), a repentant sinner, cast myself at your feet humbly imploring you to take me with all that I am and have, wholly to yourself as your possession and property. Please make of me, of all my powers of soul and body, of my whole life, death and eternity, whatever most pleases you. If it pleases you, use all that I am and have without reserve, wholly to accomplish what was said of you: “She will crush your head,” and, “You alone have destroyed all heresies in the world.” Let me be a fit instrument in your immaculate and merciful hands for introducing and increasing your glory to the maximum in all the many strayed and indifferent souls, and thus help extend as far as possible the blessed kingdom of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus. For wherever you enter you obtain the grace of conversion and growth in holiness, since it is through your hands that all graces come to us from the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.


V. Allow me to praise you, O sacred Virgin.
R. Give me strength against your enemies.

(We do the Sign of the Cross in     Faith,   Hope   and   Love   which both opens and closes the sequence of prayer)

They come to a place, which is named Gethsemane; and he says to his disciples:

Sit here till I pray.

 

He took with him Peter and James and John, and began to be distressed and in anguish, and said to them:

My soul is encompassed with sorrow even to death: remain here and keep watch.


And going forward a little he fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it was possible, the hour might pass away from him; and he said:

Abba, Father, all things are possible for thee; remove this cup from me: yet not what I will, but what thou want.

 

He returned and finds them sleeping, and says to Peter:

Simon, sleepest thou? hadst thou not strength to watch one hour? Watch and pray, pray that you enter not into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.


Getsemane, Lucas van Leyden, 1517. Art of Christianity Collection. Used with Permission.


And again, he went away and prayed, saying the same words. When he returned, he found them sleeping again; for their eyes were heavy; and they knew not what to answer him.

He comes back the third time and says to them:

Sleep the remaining time, and rest?

 

it is enough; the hour has come:

Behold, the Son of man is delivered into the hands of sinners.

Rise, let us go:

Behold, he that delivers me up - is at hand.

1And immediately in the morning, the chief priests holding consultation, with the elders and the scribes, and the whole Council. They bound Jesus and led him away and delivered him to Pilate.


2And Pilate asked him: Art thou the King of the Jews?

And Jesus answered and said to him: Thou sayest.

 

3And the chief priests accused him of many things. 4Pilate again asked him:

Answerest thou nothing? See of how many things they accuse thee,

 

5But Jesus no longer answered any thing: so that Pilate wondered.

6At every feast Pilate released to them one prisoner whom they chose. 7And there was one called Barabbas who was put in prison with some seditious men, who in the insurrection had committed murder. 8The multitude then came and began to ask Pilate to do for them according to his custom. 17Pilate said to them:

Whom will you that I release to you, Barabbas or Jesus who is called Christ?

 

19And while he sat on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying: Have nothing to do with that just man; for I have suffered much this day in a dream because of him.

 

20The chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowd that they should ask for Barabbas, and to have Jesus destroyed.


21And the governor said to them: Which of the two will you that I release to you?

They said: Barabbas.

 

22Pilate says to them: What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?

 

They say all: Let him be crucified.

But he said: Why, what evil has he done?

They cried out the more, saying: Let him be crucified.

 

11The chief priests instigated the crowd that he should rather release Barabbas to them. 12And Pilate again answered and said to them:

What then will you that I shall do with him whom you call King of the Jews?

 

13They again cried out: Crucify him.

14But Pilate said to them: Why, what evil has he done?

But they cried out vehemently: Crucify him.

 

24And Pilate seeing that nothing avails, but rather that a tumult is rising, took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying:

I am innocent of the blood of this man: see you to it.

Jesus is Crowned with Thorns   - Iesus Spinis Coronatus -  

(Matt 27:22-31)


(We do the Sign of the Cross in     Faith,   Hope   and   Love   which both opens and closes the sequence of prayer)

Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the palace and brought together to him the whole cohort.


Having stripped him they put on him a purple cloak, having plaited a crown of thorns they put it on his head, and a reed in his right hand, and bowing the knee before him they mocked him, saying:


Hail, King of the Jews

and having spit upon him they took the reed and struck upon his head.

 

When they had mocked him, they took off him the cloak and put his own garments on him and led him away - to crucify him.

16Then therefore Pilate delivered Jesus to the Chief Priests to be crucified.

 

26And as they led him away, they lay hold on Simon, a Cyrenian, coming from the country, they laid the cross on him, that he might bear it after Jesus.

 

17…And bearing the cross, he went forth to that place called Calvary, or in Hebrew called Golgotha.

27And there followed him a great multitude of the people, and of women that bewailed and lamented him.

 

28But Jesus turned to them and said:

Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me; but weep for yourselves and for your children; 29for behold, there are coming days in which they shall say: Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that did not give suck. 30Then shall they begin to say to the mountains: Fall on us, and to the hills: Cover us; 31for if they do these things in the green tree, what shall be done in the dry?


32And there were also two others, two evildoers, to be crucified with Jesus.

The fifth Sorrowful mystery   - quintum mysterium Dolorósa - 


The Crucifixion of Jesus   - Iesus in Cruce Moritur  - 

(Luk 23:32-49, Mark 15:24-40, Matt 27:33-53, 24:13, Joh 19:23-30)


(We do the Sign of the Cross in     Faith,   Hope   and   Love   which both opens and closes the sequence of prayer)

33at the place, called Calvary, they crucified Jesus and the two evildoers, one on the right and the other on the left of Jesus.

 

34Jesus said: Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

 

The soldiers mocked him and were dividing his clothing among them, they cast lots.


35The people stood looking on; …


31In like manner also the chief priests deriding among themselves with the scribes said:

Others he saved, himself he cannot save. Christ the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, that we may see and believe.


38there was also a superscription over him:

 

THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

 

39And one of the evildoers who were hanged blasphemed him, saying:

If thou be Christ? save thyself and us.


40But the other, answering, rebuked him and said:

Do not even thou fear God, seeing that thou art in the same condemnation?

We indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of what we have done;

but this man has done nothing evil.


42Then he said: Jesus, remember me when thou come in thy kingdom.


43Jesus said to him:

Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in Paradise. 


44 And it was almost the sixth hour; and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 

46 And Jesus crying out with a loud voice, said:

Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.


And saying this, he gave up the ghost.



45 And the sun was darkened,

and the veil of the temple was rent of two, from the top to the bottom,

in the midst as the earth quaked.

Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in proelio,

contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium.

Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur:

tuque, Princeps militiae caelestis,

Satanam aliosque spiritus malignos,

qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo,

divina virtute, in infernum detrude.

Amen
