Kiss the Crucifix and Unite Your Sufferings with Christ
In the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
On the Miraculous Medal, Pray:
O Mary conceived without sin pray for us who have recourse to thee.
*Meditation:* God the Father knew of Mary’s presence before she was conceived in her mother’s womb.
*Genesis 3:15:* “I will put enmity between thee and the woman… She shall crush thy head and thou shall lie in wait for her heel.”
Our Father, Who art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
*Meditation:* Our Lady’s yes to God the Father, “Not my will but thy will be done.”
*Luke 1:38:* “I am the handmaid of the Lord, said Mary. Let what you have said be done to me.”
Hail Mary, Full of Grace, The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of death. Amen.
Pray the “Glory Be” 9 Times (yellow beads)
*1 Cor. 2:8-9:* “It is a wisdom that none of the masters of this age have ever known, or they would not have crucified the Lord of glory; we teach what scripture calls: the things that no eye has seen and no ear has heard, things beyond the mind of man, all that God has prepared for those who love Him.”
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Prayer to the Holy Family 3 Times (green beads)
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph I place all my trust in Thee.
On the Crucifix, Pray the Memorare:
*Meditation:* We unite ourselves with Our Lady at the foot of the cross.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
On the Crucifix, make the Sign of the Cross: In the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
