O Loving Jesus, meek Lamb of God, I a miserable sinner, salute and worship the most Sacred Wound of Thy Shoulder on which Thou didst bear Thy heavy Cross, which so tore Thy Flesh and laid bare Thy Bones as to inflict on Thee an anguish greater than any other Wound of Thy Most Blessed Body. I adore Thee, O Jesus most sorrowful, I praise and glorify Thee and give Thee thanks for this most sacred and painful Wound, beseeching Thee by that exceeding pain and by the crushing burden of Thy heavy Cross to be merciful to me, a sinner, to forgive me all my mortal and venial sins, and to lead me on towards Heaven along the Way of Thy Cross. Amen.
It is related in the annals of Clairvaux that St. Bernard asked Our Lord which was His greatest unrecorded suffering and Our Lord answered: "I had on My Shoulder, while I bore My Cross on the Way of Sorrows, a grievous Wound, which was more painful than the others and which is not recorded by men. Honor this Wound with thy devotion and I will grant thee whatsoever thou dost ask through Its virtue and merit. And in regard to all those who shall venerate this Wound, I will remit to them all their venial sins and will no longer rememeber their mortal sins."
This revelation and promise of Our Dear Savior is another proof of His unlimited mercy. You are urged to say these prayers daily and to promulgate this prayer on a continuous basis, so that others may share in this blessing.
I do wish to share any and all blessings from Our Dear Savior and hope that if you visit you partake in its merit.
Pictures this time include some from the walk in the Nathaniel Greene Park that Norm, Eric and Daniel took. Michael has been suffering from a yucky cold. Also featured are pics that show my early Mother's Day gift of new ceiling light fixtures (YEAH!), and a new Kleenex cozy I knitted out of some pretty green eyelash yarn that was gifted to our dear friend Carolyn to help brighten her day. I finished the very bright afghan except for the fringe, which I need to get some more black yarn for. Have made some more little red sweaters, and am seeing just how many I can eeek out of the 8oz of Super Saver Red Heart. Have a blessed day ya'll:)
