9. Jesus is crucified


A Reading

And they crucified him, and divided his clothes among them, casting lots to decide what each should take.

(Mark 15.24)

A Prayer

Lord Jesus, you bled in pain as the nails were driven into your flesh:

transform through the mystery of your love the pain of those who suffer.

To you, Jesus, our crucified Lord,

be honour and glory with the Father and the Holy Spirit,

now and for ever.
