+ Fifth Sorrowful Mystery: The Crucifixion

Begin with the Our Father.
Read each verse, then say the Hail Mary.
At the end, say the Glory Be.

Optionally, finish with the Fatima Prayer below.

1 They brought him to the place called Golgotha, which means the place of the skull.

2 Then they crucified him and divided his garments among them, casting lots for them to see what each should take.

3 Along with him they crucified two thieves, one on his right and the other on his left.

4 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”

5 Those people who passed by jeered at him, shaking their heads and saying, “Save yourself and come down from the cross.”

6 Standing near the cross of Jesus was his mother.

7 Jesus said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son.”

8 Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother.”

9 At three o’clock, Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

10 Then Jesus cried out in a loud voice and breathed his last.

The Fatima Prayer: O My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of your mercy.
