Friday we celebrate the greatest gift in history. God's gift of salvation to mankind, through the death of His one and only Son. I pray all will come to accept this gift and we can celebrate together for eternity with our Lord.
John 14:6 … Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 3:16 … “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
Romans 8:1 … There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
Romans 5:8 … But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
John 3:16 * Ephesians 2:8-9 * Romans 10:9-10 * John 14:3-6 * Romans 5:8
Jesus Christ, Son of God made Man, crowned with thorns, bearing a scepter of a reed, wearing a royal cloak purpled with Your Precious Blood, I venerate You as the Man of Sorrows and acknowledge You as my Lord and King!
Jesus crucified, I firmly renounce the devil and detest all sin that has torn me from Your loving friendship. I pledge my loyalty to You, my Saviour, and beg You to make me Your own in sincerest love. I promise to be faithful in service to You, and to strive to become more pleasing to you by avoiding every sin and its occasions, by carrying out my duties perfectly and by practicing virtue.
Jesus crucified, accept the homage I wish to render You as a token of my sincerest appreciation for the sorrows and sufferings You have willingly borne to atone for my many sins and to prove how much You love me.
I adore You as my very God, Who willed to become Man in order to save me from eternal death.
I thank You as my best Friend, Who laid down Your life as proof of the greatest love possible.
I ask pardon for having so little thought of You, Jesus crucified, and for having caused Your sorrows and sufferings by the many sins I have committed.
I pray to You, dearest Jesus, for all the graces I need to know You, to love You and serve You faithfully unto death, and to save my soul.
Give me a tender and fervent devotion to Your Sacred Passion by which I was redeemed, venerating You especially in Holy Mass.
Teach me how to unite sorrows and sufferings of my life with Your own.
