The Last Words of Christ



In the name of the Father
and of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit.


Lord Jesus Christ, true God and true man,
I am heartily sorry for having sinned You and my neighbor.
You are my Lord and my Brother whom I love above all things.
Come and help me, not to sin again,
and led me into a new life.
I trust in Your loving forgiveness.

Opening Prayer


Lord Jesus of Nazareth,
Your cross proclaims the wonder of Your love.
Teach us to reflect on Your suffering,
death and resurrection,
in order to have an unfailing faith in Your goodness that has no end.
You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit
forever and ever. Amen.

Reflection: [Jn. 19:25-27]

Standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother and his mother’s sister,
Mary the wife of Cleophas,
and Mary of Magdala.
When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple there whom he loved,
he said to his mother,
“Woman, behold, your son.”
Then he said to the disciple,
“Behold, your mother.”
And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

St. John represents the followers of Jesus on the cross.
Jesus gave us to His mother to be her children;
She is our mother.
Just as God used the Blessed Virgin to come close to us,
so He wants that we come close to Christ through the Blessed Mother.
Let us love her the way we love her Son, Jesus.
Learn from her humility, purity, and love for God and our neighbor.

[Short Silence]


Father in heaven,
Your Son Jesus prayed that You forgive us our sins.
Receive his prayer for all of us, sinners.


* (R) Lord of Nazareth, be merciful to us.

Through St. John, You gave Mary the Mother of all.
May we be shining reflections of your Mother. (R)

Lord, listen to those who hope in You;
from all snares and loneliness, deliver us. (R)

Lord, Jesus, at the time of our death,
may Your Mother pray for us so that
we may be with You in paradise. (R)

[Pause for Personal Intentions]

Loving Father, You willed that Your Son Jesus give His life,
so that we may be with You in heaven.
Grant that we may be united to His suffering and death,
so that we can be united with him in his rising again.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.



(R) Have mercy and save us.

Blood of Christ, the only Son of the Father. (R)
Blood of Christ of the old and everlasting covenant. (R)
Blood of Christ that washes away my sins and the sins of the world. (R)
Blood of Christ that formed like sweat and fell to the ground at Gethsemane. (R)
Blood of Christ that flowed out while You were scourged at the pillar. (R)
Blood of Christ that covered Your face at the crowning of thorns. (R)
Blood of Christ, scorned by the people on the road of Jerusalem. (R)
Blood of Christ, emptying itself at the crucifixion. (R)
Blood of Christ, source of our salvation. (R)
Blood of Christ, river of mercy and forgiveness. (R)
Blood of Christ, that won over violence and injustice. (R)
Blood of Christ, refuge of the abused and the downtrodden. (R)
Blood of Christ, strength of those who suffer. (R)
Blood of Christ, consolation of lonely souls. (R)
Blood of Christ, hope of sinners. (R)
Blood of Christ, that makes strong the weak and the afflicted. (R)
Blood of Christ that leads the poor souls into heaven. (R)

Concluding Prayer:


Lord God, our Father, You willed that Your Son, Jesus,
died on the cross for the sins of the world.
Grant us the grace to be one with His suffering
so that we may be worthy to hope for a new life.
Help us to walk the way of Your commandments
and to serve You in our neighbors.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
