+ Third Sorrowful Mystery: The Crowning with Thorns

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 Then the governor’s soldiers took Jesus inside the praetorium and gathered the whole cohort around him.

2 They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him.

3 After twisting some thorns into a crown, they placed it on his head and put a reed in his right hand.

4 Then, bending the knee before him, they mocked him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!”

5 They also spat upon him and, taking the reed, used it to strike him on the head.

6 Pilate went out and said to the Jews, “Look, I am bringing him out to you to let you know that I find no evidence of a crime in him.”

7 Then Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe.

8 Pilate said to them, “Behold, the man!”

9 When they saw him, the chief priests and the temple guards shouted, “Crucify him! Crucify him!”

10 And when they had finished mocking him, they stripped him of the robe, dressed him in his own clothes, and led him away to crucify him.

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.
