Here Jesus Is Stripped of His Garments

Adoramus te, Christe, et benedicimus tibi. Quia per sanctam crucem tuam redemisti mundum.

They took His clothes, dividing them into four shares. One for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. (John 19, 23)

If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into the hell. (Matthew 5, 29)

Let us Pray

Almighty and Eternal God, You keep together those You have united. Look kindly on all who follow Jesus Your Son. We are all consecrated to You by our common baptism; Make us one in the fullness of faith, and keep us one in the fellowship of love, through Christ our Lord. Amen

Holy Mother, pierce me through in my heart each wound renew of my Savior Crucified.
