Desiring to save the world, You healed the blind, the lame, the lepers, the deaf and the dumb, and drove out evil spirits. But the foolish, breathing envy and malice, nailed You to the Cross, not knowing how to sing: Alleluia!


Jesus Eternal King, You suffered in every limb for my intemperance and incontinence, that You might make the whole of me pure, giving us a pattern in everything that we might follow in Your steps and cry:

    Jesus, unfathomable Love, Who did not charge with sin those who crucified You!
    Jesus, Who prayed earnestly with crying and tears in the garden, teach us also to pray!
    Jesus, Who fulfilled all prophecy in Yourself, fulfill our heart's desire for goodness!
    Jesus, Who surrendered Your spirit into Your Father's hands, in the hour of my death receive my spirit!
    Jesus, Who prevented not the division of Your garments, separate my soul from my body gently!
    Jesus, Son of God, remember us when You enter into Your Kingdom!
It's later than you think!

Your immaculate mother offered You the tenderest of songs, saying: "Even though You suffer on the Cross, I know You from the womb to be begotten of the Father before the morning star, for I see that all creation is suffering with You. You now surrender Your spirit to the Father. Receive also my spirit and forsake me not as I cry: Alleluia!"


Like a light-receiving lamp the immaculate Virgin stood at Thy Cross burning with love and torn with a mother's sorrow for Thee, the true Sun of Righteousness that was setting in the grave, and with Her accept these prayers of our heart:

    Jesus, Who was lifted up on the Tree that with You might lift us fallen creatures to the Father!
    Jesus, Who gave the Ever-Virgin as a mother to the virgin Apostle that You might teach us purity and virginity!
    Jesus, Who entrusted Your Mother to Your disciple, the Theologian, commit us all to Her maternal protection!
    Jesus, Conqueror of the world and hell, conquer the unbelief, the pride of life, and the lust of the eyes that lurks within us!
    Jesus, Destroyer of the power of death, deliver me from eternal death!
    Jesus, Son of God, remember us when You enter into Your Kingdom!
It's later than you think!

Grant me Your Grace, O Jesus my God. Receive me as You received Joseph and Nicodemus, that I may offer to You my soul like a clean shroud, may anoint Your most pure body with the fragrant spices of virtue, and may have You in my heart as in a tomb, as I cry: Alleluia!


Praising Your voluntary Crucifixion, we worship Your Passion, O Christ. With the centurion we confess that You are truly the Son of God Who are coming on the clouds with power and great glory. Put us not then to shame, who are redeemed by Your blood, and thus cry aloud:

    Jesus, long-suffering, by the lamentation of Your Virgin Mother rescue us from eternal weeping!
    Jesus, forsaken by all, forsake me not in the hour of my death!
    Jesus, along with Mary Magdalene who touched Your feet, receive me!
    Jesus, condemn me not with the traitor and those who crucified You!
    Jesus, bring me with the good thief into Paradise!
    Jesus, Son of God, remember us when You enter into Your Kingdom!
It's later than you think!

O Jesus Christ, Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, accept this small act of thanksgiving offered to You with all our soul, and heal us by Your saving Passion from all sickness of soul and body. Protect us by Your Cross from enemies visible and invisible, and forsake us not at the end of our life, that saved from eternal death by Your death, we may unceasingly cry to You:

      Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

In completing the choirs of angels, You did not take on the angelic nature, but being the Eternal God, for my sake You became man, and restored to life men who were dead through sin with Your Life-giving Body and Blood. Therefore, in gratitude for Your amazing love, we humbly cry to You:

    Jesus, God, Eternal Love, Who was pleased to save us who are born of earth!
    Jesus, Infinite Mercy, Who came down here to us fallen creatures!
    Jesus, Who was clothed in our flesh and destroyed the dominion of death by Your death!
    Jesus, Who deifies us with Your Divine Mysteries!
    Jesus, Who has redeemed the whole world by Your Cross and Passion!
    Jesus, Son of God, remember us when You enter into Your Kingdom!
It's later than you think!

      Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God,
      Creator of Heaven and earth, Saviour of the world,

      Behold I who am unworthy and of all men most sinful,
      humbly bow the knee of my heart before
      the glory of Thy majesty and praise Thy Cross and Passion,
      and offer thanksgiving to Thee, the King and God of all,
      that Thou wast pleased to bear as man all labours and hardships,
      all temptations and tortures,
      that Thou mightest be our Fellow-sufferer and Helper,
      and a Saviour to all of us in all our sorrows, needs, and sufferings.

      I know, O all-powerful Lord, that all these things
      were not necessary for Thee,
      but for us men and for our salvation Thou dist endure Thy Cross and Passion
      that Thou mightest redeem us from all cruel bondage to the enemy.

      What, then, shall I give in return to Thee, O Lover of mankind,
      for all that Thou hast suffered for me, a sinner?
      I cannot say, for soul and body and all blessings come from Thee,
      and all that I have is Thine, and I am Thine.
      Yet I know that love is repaid only by love.
      Teach me, then, to love and praise Thee.

      Trusting solely in Thine infinite compassion and mercy, O Lord,
      I praise Thine unspeakable patience,
      I magnify Thine unutterable exhaustion,
      I glorify Thy boundless mercy,
      I adore Thy purest Passion,
      and most lovingly kissing Thy wounds, I cry:
      Have mercy on me a sinner,
      and cause that Thy holy Cross may not be fruitless in me,
      that I may participate here with faith in Thy sufferings
      and be vouchsafed to behold also the glory of Thy Kingdom in Heaven.

      Amen.
It's later than you think!
