O Lord, for the redemption of the world,
you willed to be born among human beings,
subjected to the rite of circumcision,
rejected by the people,
betrayed by Judas with a kiss,
bound with cords,
led like an innocent lamb to slaughter,
shamelessly exposed to the gaze of Annas
as well as Caiaphas, Pilate, and Herod,
accused by false witnesses,
tormented by scourges and insults,
spat upon and crowned with thorns,
struck with blows of hand and reed,
blindfolded and stripped of your garments,
affixed to the wood
and lifted high on the Cross,
numbered among thieves,
given gall and vinegar to drink,
and pierced by a lance.

Lord, by these most holy sufferings which we,
your unworthy servants,
devoutly call to mind,
and by your holy Cross and death,
deliver us from the pains of hell,
and be pleased to take us where you took the penitent
thief
who was crucified with you.
You live and reign with the Father
and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever.

Amen.
