V70: Prayer Before A Crucifix

Behold, O kind and most sweet Jesus, I cast myself on my knees in Your sight, and with the most fervent desire of my soul I pray and implore You to impress upon my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope and charity, with true repentance for my sins and a firm desire of amendment, while with deep affection and grief of soul I ponder within myself and mentally contemplate Your five wounds, having before my eyes that which David spoke in prophesy of You, O good Jesus: “They pierced My hands and My feet and they have numbered all My bones”.
