+ Second Sorrowful Mystery: The Scourging at the Pillar

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 Jesus foresaw this punishment: “They will hand the Son of Man over to the Gentiles to be mocked and scourged and crucified.”

2 Pilate ordered that Jesus be scourged.

3 His enemies said: “Let us test him with insults and torments, so that we may be able to measure his gentleness and ascertain the depths of his forbearance of evil.”

4 When he was abused, he did not retaliate. When he suffered, he made no threats, but he placed his trust in the one who judges justly.

5 The Suffering Servant said: “I offered my back to those who struck me, my cheeks to those who plucked my beard.”

6 By his wounds you have been healed.

7 My child, when you come to serve the Lord, prepare yourself to endure trials.

8 Be sincere of heart and steadfast, and do not be alarmed when confronted with adversity.

9 Accept whatever befalls you, and be patient whenever you suffer humiliation.

10 For gold is tested in the fire, and worthy men in the furnace of humiliation.

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.
