The Crucifixion and Death of Jesus

5th Sorrowful Mystery of the Rosary

Scriptural Rosary      

Pilate wrote out a notice and had it fixed to the cross: it ran: "Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews."

When the soldiers had finished crucifying Jesus they took his clothing and divided it into four shares, one for each soldier. His undergarment was seamless, woven in one piece from neck to hem; so they said to one another, "Instead of tearing it, let's throw dice to decide who is to have it." In this way the words of scripture were fulfilled: "They shared out my clothing among them. They cast lots from my clothes." This is exactly what the soldiers did.

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother's sister, Mary, the wife of Cleopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, "Woman, this is your son." Then to the disciple he said, "This is your mother." And from that moment the disciple made a place for her in his home. (Jn 19, 19 & 23-27)

Meditation: Mary treasures her Sons words from the Cross, "Woman behold your Son", and becomes our Mother, accepting us as her children - and to the child, Jesus says "Behold your Mother." Jesus, by my life may others come to see Mary as their Mother.

Eternal Father, by the merits of all that your Son suffered on the Cross, may we always help our suffering brothers by being Jesus to them.
Mary, I turn to you my Mother, and beg you to come home with me as Jesus desires.

Our Father ... Hail Mary (x10) ... Glory be ... O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell and lead all souls to heaven especially those who have most need of thy mercy.

with Westminster Cathedral Rosary Group       

The Crucifixion - We gather now around the foot of Our Lord's Cross and we give thanks to you, Jesus, for this supreme outpouring of your love and mercy. And we lift up to you now all those who are suffering, whether in body, mind or spirit, especially those known to us. And we pray for all the sick and housebound who are joining in with these prayers. So, with great trust and confidence, we ask you to touch all these who are suffering with your healing, your peace, and your love. And we ask you to fill them with faith that one day they will united with you and our mother Mary in heaven, where there is no more suffering.

And Jesus cried out with a loud voice and said 'Father, into Thy hands I commend spirit.' And having said this, he died.

3 2us by Fr William Pearsall SJ      

"Christ washes the feet of his disciples and on the day that follows he will wash the world in his own blood. So the bread which is broken is his own body which will be offered for us and the cup which he blesses and gives to his disciples is the cup of his blood which will be shed for us. And for this reason the Last Supper can never be separated from the Cross. They belong together. And the Cross itself is the reason Christ came - it is so that we can be reconciled with God through this gift of love whereby the Son of God offers himself on behalf of humanity and in his human nature is crucified to the wood of the cross, with his arms outstretched in an embrace nailed to that wood and an embrace that will include the whole universe and he bares the wounds of that suffering, even in his risen body. They remain the marks of that love in His glory in heaven so that God's own life is inseparable now from this moment of death, the death of Christ on the Cross and the Gospels speak of that as his hour of glory."

3 2us by Archbishop Vincent Nichols      

"Today, Good Friday. Funny isn't it that we call the day good on which Our Lord is put to death but it is profoundly the best of days because it is the day in which our freedom is won."
[Music: sung by the Holy Redeemer Choir]
