O Jesus Nazarene, my most sweet Redeemer, I prostrate myself before Thee, with a heart full of repentance for all the sins I have committed against Thee, especially for my forgetfullness of the graces which thou has bestowed on me in the past, most particularly the ineffable grace of the act of redemption. Jesus, I am sorry and deeply grieve my offenses.
My Lord, I am sorry for all my sins which have been the cause of Thy carrying of the cross in the midst of suffering and embitterness until thous has offered Thy life in Mt Calvary. This thou hast done for love of me, a sinful creature, and for love of mankind.
Allow me now, my sweet Lord to bring myself face to face with Thee, however unworthy I am. Forgive me all my sins, since Thou didst not want the condemnation of the sinner but his conversion and salvation. I come to Thee with firm purpose of amendment and a resolve not to displease Thee again by sin but to pledge my service to Thee, unto the hour of my death. Sanctify O God my desires and deign to grant me the graces which I need, and I call upon the powerful, intercession of Thy Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary. Amen.
FIFTH DAY - SIMON CYRENE ASSISTS JESUS CARRY THE CROSS.
MEDITATION... Although Jesus seems about to expire, He does not need the help of Simon since he wills to die on the cross. Yet, he still accepts the help of Simon to teach us the virtues of charity and perseverance.
O Jesus, I too will carry my cross patiently to the end and strive to lighten the cross of my fellowmen.
REFLECTION... Man's greed for material wealth has not infrequently led him to commit crime. Charity finds no place in the hearts of the wicked.
The immoderate love for material and wordly things can never insure perpetual enjoyment. The pleasures of the world are fleeting and transitory, quite unlike those of heaven as our Lord Jesus said:
"Lay not up to yourselves on earth; where the rust and moth comsume and where thieves break through and steal. But lay up to yourselves treasures in heaven where neither the rust nor the moth doth consume and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where thy treasure is, there is thy heart also." (Matthew 6:19-21)
... (Pray three Hail Mary's in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary so that she may ask from Jesus her Son the grace which you would like to obtain from Him).
PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN
O Mary, Mother laden with sorrows, I humbly ask of thee, through the merits of thy grief which Thou didst suffer because of the death of thy Son, our Lord and God. Who was disfigured by bruises and blood for love of me, that thou offer to God my supplications so that I may obtain the graces which I ask from Him.
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee
O most sweet Jesus Nazarene, My God and Redeemer, who hast trodden the road to Calvary with the weight of the cross on thy shoulders: look down on me a sinner who is now giving praise to Thy sufferings. I also thank Thee for saving me through thy sweet acceptance of sufferings on the cross.
Forgive me my sins, O Good Jesus. I acknowledge my weaknesses and I trust that out of the boundless mercy Thou will wash with Thy blood my inumerable sins. I love Thee above all things, and I promise to be faithful to Thy commandments unto the hour of my death.
Be with me, Lord and guide my steps so that I may reach the end of this earthly journey to the kingdom of heaven. Amen
