Prayers for the HOLY FATHER

Da Domine Deus mihi, quaeso,
ob memoriam harum ante crucem tuam
Passionum veram ante mortem meam Contritionem,
puram Confessionem, dignam satisfactionem,
ac omnium peccatorum remissionem.
(O Lord God, I beseech Thee,
in memory of all these pains and sufferings
which Thou didst endure before Thy Passion on the Cross,
grant me before my death true contrition,
a sincere and entire Confession,
worthy satisfaction,
and the remission of all my sins.

Deprecor te per huiusmodi sacratissimi
et amarissimi in cruce doloris memoriam
ut des mihi timorem et amorem tuum.
(I beg of Thee, by the memory of Thy most sacred suffering
on the Cross, to grant me the grace to fear Thee
and to love Thee.
Amen. )

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.

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 our death. Amen.

O Jesus Christ! Eternal Sweetness to those who love You, joy surpassing all joy and all desire, salvation and hope of all sinners, You have proved that You have no greater desire than to be among men, even assuming human nature at the fullness of time for the love of men, recall all the sufferings You have endured from the instant of Your conception, and especially during your Passion, as it was decreed and ordained from all eternity in the Divine plan.

Remember, O Lord, that during the Last Supper with Your disciples, having washed their feet, You gave them Your Most Precious Body and Blood, and while at the same time You sweetly consoled them, You foretold of Your coming Passion. Remember the sadness and bitterness which You experienced in Your Soul as You Yourself bore witness saying: “My Soul is sorrowful even unto death.” Remember all the fear, anguish, and pain that You suffered in your delicate Body before the torment of the crucifixion, when, after having prayed three times, bathed in a sweat of blood, you were betrayed by Judas, Your disciple, arrested by the people of a nation You had chosen and elevated, accused by false witnesses, unjustly judged by three judges during the flower of Your youth and during the solemn Paschal season. Remember that You were despoiled of Your garments and clothed in those of derision; that Your face and eyes were veiled, that You were buffeted, crowned with thorns, a reed placed in Your Hands, that You were crushed with blows and overwhelmed with affronts and outrages.

In memory of all these pains and sufferings which You endured before Your Passion on the Cross, grant me before my death true contrition, a sincere and entire confession, worthy satisfaction and the remission of all my sins. Amen.
