Title: The 24 Hours of the Passion according to Servant of God Luisa Piccarretta.
Post by: XavierSem on April 04, 2019, 02:49:51 AM
Some may find it helpful for meditation to remember where Jesus was each hour of the day leading up to His Sacrifice on the Cross.

In Scripture and in the Divine Office, it is clear that the Lord Jesus began His Agony on the Cross at 12:00 PM and Died for us at 3:00 PM.

More details were confirmed to a holy soul consigned to a sickbed for most of her life. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luisa_Piccarreta (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luisa_Piccarreta)

O give me help, grace, love, profound compassion, and understanding of your sufferings as I now meditate this Hour.

For those hours which I cannot meditate, I offer you the will I have to meditate them; and I propose to meditate them with my intention during all the hours in which I must dedicate myself to my duties, or sleep.

Accept, O merciful Lord, my loving intention, and let it be beneficial for me and for all, as if I effectively and in a saintly way accomplished what I desire to do.

I give You thanks, O my Jesus. I thank You for calling me to union with You in prayer. To please You, I take your thoughts, your tongue, and your Heart. I want to pray with them. I want to fuse myself in your Will and in your Love. I extend my arms to embrace You, I rest my head on your Heart— and I begin…."
