Prayer (on Crucifix)
O Blessed Trinity
We thank you for having graced the Church with Pope John Paul ll
and for allowing the tenderness of your Fatherly care,
the glory of the Cross of Christ,
and the splendor of the Holy Spirit, to shine through him.
Trusting fully in Your infinite mercy
and in the maternal intercession of Mary,
he has given us a living image of Jesus the Good Shepherd,
and has shown us that holiness is the necessary measure of ordinary Christian life and is the way of achieving communion with You.
Grant us, by his intercession, and according to Your will, the graces
we implore, hoping that he will soon be numbered among Your saints. Amen.
Pray the Our Father on Each of the Beads of the First Set
Our Father, Who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Pray the Hail Mary on Each of the Beads of the Second Set
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee. Blessed art Thou among women and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Pray the Glory Be on Each of the Beads of the Third Set
Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be; World without end. Amen.
