+ Fifth Sorrowful Mystery: The Crucifixion

+ 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.

Concluding prayers:

Hail, holy Queen, mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile show us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

V: Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.
R: That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

V: Let us pray.
R: O God, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal salvation. Grant, we beseech Thee, that while meditating on these mysteries of the most holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, that we may both imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.
