Jesus Is Nailed To The Cross

We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you

Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world

Jesus was not only put to death, he was executed in one of the most violent and painful ways possible: crucifixion. He suffered in silence as huge nails were pounded into his hands and feet. Later, Thomas the Apostle would doubt that Christ had truly Risen and Christ showed Thomas his wounds. How willing are we to sacrifice for those that we love?

Lord, give me the grace to love others as myself


I love you, Jesus, my love above all things,

And I repent with my whole heart of having offended you.

Never permit me to separate myself from you again,

Grant that I may love you always, and then do with me what you will.
