PRAYER TO JESUS CRUCIFIED
(To be recited before a Crucifix)
Look down upon me, good and gentle Jesus, before Thy face I humbly kneel, and with burning soul pray and beseech Thee to fix deep in my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope, and charity, true contrition for my sins, and a firm purpose of amendment; whilst I contemplate with great love and tender pity Thy five wounds and ponder over them within me, calling to mind the words which David, Thy prophet, said of Thee, my Jesus: "They pierced my hands and my feet; they numbered all my bones."—Ps. xxi, 17,18.
Indulgence ten years. Plenary after Holy Communion under the usual conditions. (No. 171)
