Prayer to the Most Holy Wounds

1841

Prayer to the Most Holy Wounds

The following aspirations must be repeated often to sick persons: “My Jesus, pardon and mercy, for the merits of Your Holy Wounds. This prayer will soothe both body and soul.

O JESUS, Divine Redeemer, be merciful to us and to the whole world. Amen.

STRONG God, holy God, immortal God, have mercy on us and on the whole world. Amen.

GRACE and mercy, O my Jesus, during present dangers; cover us with Thy Precious Blood. Amen.

ETERNAL Father, grant us mercy through the Blood of Jesus Christ, Thine only Son; grant us mercy, we beseech Thee. Amen.

As I kneel before Thee on the Cross, most loving Saviour of my soul, my conscience reproaches me for having nailed Thee to that cross with these hands of mine, as often as I have fallen into mortal sin, wearying Thee with my monstrous ingratitude.
My God, my chief and most perfect good, worthy of all my love because thou hast ever loaded me with blessings, I cannot now undo my misdeeds, as I would most willingly; but I will loathe them grieving greatly for having offended Thee, at Thy feet,
I will try, at least, to compassionate Thee, to give Thee thanks,
to ask of Thee pardon and contrition; wherefore, with heart and lips, I say:

To The First Wound, of the Left Foot

Lord Jesus Christ, I adore the sacred Wound of Thy left foot; I compassionate Thee for the most bitter pain which Thou didst suffer.

I thank Thee for the love whereby Thou wast wearied
in overtaking me on the way to ruin, and didst bleed amid the thorns and brambles of my sins.

I offer to the Eternal Father the pain and love of Thy most holy Humanity, in atonement for my sins, all which I detest with sincere and bitter contrition.

Our Father…
Hail Mary…
Glory Be…

Holy Mother, pierce me through, In my heart each wound renew Of my Saviour crucified!

To The Second Wound, of the Right Foot 

O Lord Jesus Christ, I adore the sacred Wound of Thy right foot; I compassionate Thee for the bitter pain which Thou didst suffer.

I thank Thee for that love which pierced Thee with such torture and shedding of blood, in order to punish my wanderings
and the guilty pleasures I have granted to my unbridled passions.

I offer the Eternal Father all the pains and love of Thy most holy Humanity, and I pray unto Thee for grace to weep over my transgressions with burning tears, and to enable me to persevere in the good which I have begun, without ever swerving again from my obedience to the commandments of my God.

Our Father…
Hail Mary…
Glory Be…

Holy Mother, pierce me through, In my heart each wound renew Of my Saviour crucified!

To The Third Wound, of the Left Hand

O Lord Jesus Christ, I adore the sacred Wound of Thy left hand; I compassionate Thee for the bitter pain which Thou didst suffer, I thank Thee for having, in Thy love, spared me the scourges and eternal damnation which my sins had merited.

I offer to the Eternal Father the pain and love of Thy most holy Humanity:

and I pray Thee to teach me how to turn to good account of my span of life, and bring forth in it worthy fruits of penance,
and so disarm the justice of God, which I have provoked.

Our Father…
Hail Mary…
Glory Be…

Holy Mother, pierce me through, In my heart each wound renew Of my Saviour crucified!

To The Fourth Wound, of the Right Hand

O Lord Jesus Christ, I adore the sacred Wound of Thy right hand; I compassionate Thee for the bitter pain which Thou didst suffer.

I thank Thee for Thy graces lavished on me with such love,
in spite of all my most perverse obstinacy.

I offer to the Eternal Father all the pain and love of Thy most holy Humanity; and I pray Thee to change my heart and its affections, and make me do all my actions in accordance with the will of God.

Our Father…
Hail Mary…
Glory Be…

Holy Mother, pierce me through, In my heart each wound renew Of my Saviour crucified!

To The Fifth Wound, of the Sacred Side

O Lord Jesus Christ, I adore the sacred Wound in Thy side;
I compassionate Thee for the cruel insult Thou didst suffer.

I thank Thee, my Jesus, for the love which suffered Thy side
and Heart to be pierced, so that the last drops of blood and water might issue forth, making my redemption to abound.

I offer to the Eternal Father this outrage, and the love of Thy most holy Humanity, that my soul may enter once for all into that most loving Heart, eager and ready to receive the greatest sinners, and never more depart.

Our Father…
Hail Mary…
Glory Be…

Holy Mother, pierce me through, In my heart each wound renew Of my Saviour crucified!Mary Martha Chambon (1841-1907) was a lay Sister of the Monastery of the Visitation Order in Chambery, France.

During her life, Jesus Himself is said to have revealed to her the following two invocations, giving her the double mission to adore and invoke the Sacred Wounds unceasingly and to revive this devotion in the hearts of creatures.

She died in the odor of sanctity on 21 March 1907, and the cause for her beatification was introduced in 1937.

Come to My Wounds with hearts burning with love, and make the aspirations with great fervor that you may obtain the graces and favors you desire.

Come to this wound in My Side; it is the Wound of Love from which issue flames of fire”

“You must pray that the knowledge of My Sacred Wounds may spread in the world”. (As He said these words, Sr. Mary Martha saw five luminous rays of glory issue from the Wounds of Christ, and envelop the globe.)

“My Holy Wounds sanctify souls and insure their spiritual advancement…Offer Me your actions united to My Sacred Wounds, and even the smallest will have an incomprehensible value”

“Offer them often to Me for sinners because I thirst for souls. At each word of the invocation that you utter, I will let a drop of My Blood fall upon the soul of a sinner.”

“When you offer My Holy Wounds for sinners, you must not forget to do so for the souls in Purgatory, as there are but few who think of their relief. The Holy Wounds are the treasure of treasures for the souls in Purgatory.”
