A PRAYER AGAINST THE PERSECUTORS OF THE HOLY MOTHER CHURCH

Raccolta #718

Graciously hear the prayers of Thy Church, we beseech Thee, O Lord

that her enemies and all heresies may be brought to naught,

and that she may serve Thee in perfect security and freedom.

Through Christ our Lord. 

Amen

MEMORARE - PRAYER TO MARY, MOTHER OF GOD


Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,

that never was it known that anyone

who fled to thy protection,

implored thy help, or sought thine intercession

was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence,

I fly unto 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.

Amen

was crucified, died, and was buried.

He descended into hell;

on the third day He rose again from the dead;

He ascended into heaven,

and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty,

from there He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

in the Holy Spirit,

Mark 14:32-42


(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, 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.

 

And he comes back 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.


And again he went away and prayed, saying the same words.


And, when he returned, he found them sleeping again; for their eyes were heavy; and they knew not what they should answer him. Returning the third time he says to them:

Sleep ye now and take your 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 betray me is at hand.

The Second Sorrowful mystery - secundum mysterium Dolorósa


Jesus before Pilate - Iesus Flagellatus

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

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


Pilate asked him:

Art thou the King of the Jews?

And Jesus answered and said to him:

Thou sayest.

 

The chief priests accused him of many things and Pilate again asked him:

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


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

 

At every feast Pilate released to them one prisoner whom they chose.

And there was one called Barabbas who was put in prison with some seditious men, who in the insurrection had committed murder.The multitude then came and began to ask Pilate to do for them according to his custom. Pilate said to them:

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

 

And 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.

 

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

Which of the two will you that I release to you?


They said: Barabbas.


Pilate again answered and said to them:

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


They again cried out: Crucify him.

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

The crowed cried out vehemently: Crucify him.

 

And 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.

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

 

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. …And bearing the cross, he went forth to Calvary, in Hebrew Golgotha.

 

There followed him a great multitude of the people, and of women that bewailed and lamented him.


Jesus turned to them and said:

Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me; but weep for yourselves and for your children;

for 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.

Then shall they begin to say to the mountains:

Fall on us,

and to the hills:

Cover us;

for if they do these things in the green tree, what shall be done in the dry?

 


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


… they crucified Jesus,

and with him two others, one on each side,

and Jesus in the midst.

At Calvary, they crucified Jesus and the two evildoers.

 Jesus said:

Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

 

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

 

The people stood looking on; …In 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.


There was also a superscription over him:

 THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS

 

And one of the evildoers that were hanged blasphemed him:

If thou be Christ? save thyself and us.


But 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.


Then he said to Jesus: 

Jesus, remember me when thou come in thy kingdom.

 

Jesus said to him: I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in Paradise.
