Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary (4)

The Fourth Sorrowful Mystery

Jesus carries the cross

CARRYING THE CROSS

Carrying the CrossMeditation:
St. Alphonsus said: “So drained of Blood is He and wearied out with His torments … He can scarcely stand. Behold Him, all torn with wounds…. Look at Him as He goes along, with Body bent double, with knees all of a tremble, dripping with Blood; and so painful is it to Him to walk, that at every step He seems ready to die.”

For all those times I have sinned and added to the weight of Your cross, O My Jesus, I pray….

Our Father, Who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done
on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners
now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Glory Be ...

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,
world without end. Amen!

Together we pray:

Rosary: Oh My Jesus

Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins,
save us from the fires of hell;
lead all souls to Heaven,
especially those most in need of Your Mercy.
