Jesus, hangs on the Cross for three endless hours. Between two criminals, a mocking title above his head, with only Mary and John and Mary Magdalene to support him, Jesus surrenders his last breath: "Into your hands I commend my spirit." Behold Jesus crucified! Behold His wounds received for love of you! His whole appearance betokens love. His head is bent to kiss you. His arms are extended to embrace you. His heart is open to receive you. Jesus dies on the Cross, to show us that His love is complete and without measure.It is in dying to our sins and ourselves
that we are born and will rise
to eternal life with you.
My Jesus, pardon and mercy through the merits of thy sacred wounds.
