 AGONY IN THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE

The Holy Rosary in the Sacred Scriptures - Sorrowful Mysteries Luke 22: 39-46

 39 And going out, he went, according to his custom, to the mount of Olives. And his disciples also followed him.

 40 And when he was come to the place, he said to them: Pray, lest ye enter into temptation.

 41 And he was withdrawn away from them a stone's cast; and kneeling down, he prayed,

 42 Saying: Father, if thou wilt, remove this chalice from me: but yet not my will, but thine be done.

 43 And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony, he prayed the longer.

 44 And his sweat became as drops of blood, trickling down upon the ground.

 45 And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow.

 46 And he said to them: Why sleep you? arise, pray, lest you enter into temptation.

Matthew 26:36-50

36 Then Jesus came with them into a country place which is called Gethsemani; and he said to his disciples: Sit you here, till I go yonder and pray.

 37 And taking with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to grow sorrowful and to be sad.

 38 Then he saith to them: My soul is sorrowful even unto death: stay you here, and watch with me.

 39 And going a little further, he fell upon his face, praying, and saying: My Father, if it be possible, let this chalice pass from me. Nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

 40 And he cometh to his disciples, and findeth them asleep, and he saith to Peter: What? Could you not watch one hour with me?

 41 Watch ye, and pray that ye enter not into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh weak.

 42 Again the second time, he went and prayed, saying: My Father, if this chalice may not pass away, but I must drink it, thy will be done.

 43 And he cometh again and findeth them sleeping: for their eyes were heavy.

 44 And leaving them, he went again: and he prayed the third time, saying the selfsame word.

 45 Then he cometh to his disciples, and saith to them: Sleep ye now and take your rest; behold the hour is at hand, and the Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of sinners.

 46 Rise, let us go: behold he is at hand that will betray me.

 47 As he yet spoke, behold Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and clubs, sent from the chief priests and the ancients of the people.

 48 And he that betrayed him, gave them a sign, saying: Whomsoever I shall kiss, that is he, hold him fast.

 49 And forthwith coming to Jesus, he said: Hail, Rabbi. And he kissed him.

 50 And Jesus said to him: Friend, whereto art thou come? Then they came up, and laid hands on Jesus, and held him.

Pray the Agony in the Garden

 

SCOURGING BY THE PILLAR

The Holy Rosary in the Sacred Scriptures - Sorrowful Mysteries Chapter 15

 1 And straightway in the morning, the chief priests holding a consultation with the ancients and the scribes and the whole council, binding Jesus, led him away, and delivered him to Pilate.

 2 And Pilate asked him: Art thou the king of the Jews? But he answering, saith to him: Thou sayest it.

 3 And the chief priests accused him in many things.

 4 And Pilate again asked him, saying: Answerest thou nothing? behold in how many things they accuse thee.

 5 But Jesus still answered nothing; so that Pilate wondered.

 6 Now on the festival day he was wont to release unto them one of the prisoners, whomsoever they demanded.

 7 And there was one called Barabbas, who was put in prison with some seditious men, who in the sedition had committed murder.

 8 And when the multitude was come up, they began to desire that he would do, as he had ever done unto them.

 9 And Pilate answered them, and said: Will you that I release to you the king of the Jews?

 10 For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him up out of envy.

 11 But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas to them.

 12 And Pilate again answering, saith to them: What will you then that I do to the king of the Jews?

 13 But they again cried out: Crucify him.

 14 And Pilate saith to them: Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more: Crucify him.

 15 And so Pilate being willing to satisfy the people, released to them Barabbas, and delivered up Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.

Pray the Scourging

 

CROWNING WITH THORNS

The Holy Rosary in the Sacred Scriptures - Sorrowful Mysteries John 18: 36-38

36 Jesus answered: My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would certainly strive that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now my kingdom is not from hence.

37 Pilate therefore said to him: Art thou a king then? Jesus answered: Thou sayest that I am a king. For this was I born, and for this came I into the world; that I should give testimony to the truth. Every one that is of the truth, heareth my voice.

38 Pilate saith to him: What is truth? And when he said this, he went out again to the Jews, and saith to them: I find no cause in him.

 

John 19: 1-5

1 Then therefore, Pilate took Jesus, and scourged him.

2 And the soldiers platting a crown of thorns, put it upon his head; and they put on him a purple garment.

3 And they came to him, and said: Hail, king of the Jews; and they gave him blows.

4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith to them: Behold, I bring him forth unto you, that you may know that I find no cause in him.

5 (Jesus therefore came forth, bearing the crown of thorns and the purple garment.) And he saith to them: Behold the Man.

 

Matthew 27: 27-30

 27 Then the soldiers of the governor taking Jesus into the hall, gathered together unto him the whole band;

 28 And stripping him, they put a scarlet cloak about him.

 29 And platting a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand. And bowing the knee before him, they mocked him, saying: Hail, king of the Jews.

 30 And spitting upon him, they took the reed, and struck his head.

Mark 15: 17-19

17 And they clothe him with purple, and platting a crown of thorns, they put it upon him.

 18 And they began to salute him: Hail, king of the Jews.

 19 And they struck his head with a reed: and they did spit on him. And bowing their knees, they adored him.

John 19:5

5 (Jesus therefore came forth, bearing the crown of thorns and the purple garment.) And he saith to them: Behold the Man.

Pray the crowning with thorns

 

CARRYING OF THE CROSS

The Holy Rosary in the Sacred Scriptures - Sorrowful Mysteries Matthew 27: 31-33

31 And after they had mocked him, they took off the cloak from him, and put on him his own garments, and led him away to crucify him.

 32 And going out, they found a man of Cyrene, named Simon: him they forced to take up his cross.

 33 And they came to the place that is called Golgotha, which is the place of Calvary.

 

Luke 23.26-31

26 And as they led him away, they laid hold of one Simon of Cyrene, coming from the country; and they laid the cross on him to carry after Jesus.

 27 And there followed him a great multitude of people, and of women, who bewailed and lamented him.

 28 But Jesus turning to them, said: Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not over me; but weep for yourselves, and for your children.

 29 For behold, the days shall come, wherein they will say: Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that have not borne, and the paps that have not given suck.

 30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains: Fall upon us; and to the hills: Cover us.

 31 For if in the green wood they do these things, what shall be done in the dry?

Pray the Carrying of the cross

CRUCIFIXION

The Holy Rosary in the Sacred Scriptures - Sorrowful Mysteries Luke 23:33-49

 33 And when they were come to the place which is called Calvary, they crucified him there; and the robbers, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.

 34 And Jesus said: Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do. But they, dividing his garments, cast lots.

 35 And the people stood beholding, and the rulers with them derided him, saying: He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the elect of God.

 36 And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar,

 37 And saying: If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself.

 38 And there was also a superscription written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

 39 And one of those robbers who were hanged, blasphemed him, saying: If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.

 40 But the other answering, rebuked him, saying: Neither dost thou fear God, seeing thou art condemned under the same condemnation?

 41 And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this man hath done no evil.

 42 And he said to Jesus: Lord, remember me when thou shalt come into thy kingdom.

 43 And Jesus said to him: Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise.

 44 And it was almost the sixth hour; and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.

 45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.

 46 And Jesus crying out with a loud voice, said: Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit. And saying this, he gave up the ghost.

 47 Now the centurion, seeing what was done, glorified God, saying: Indeed this was a just man.

 48 And all the multitude of them that were come together to that sight, and saw the things that were done, returned striking their breasts.

 49 And all his acquaintance, and the women that had followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.

Matthew 27.33 54

 33 And they came to the place that is called Golgotha, which is the place of Calvary.

 34 And they gave him wine to drink mingled with gall. And when he had tasted, he would not drink.

 35 And after they had crucified him, they divided his garments, casting lots; that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying: They divided my garments among them; and upon my vesture they cast lots.

 36 And they sat and watched him.

 37 And they put over his head his cause written: THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

 38 Then were crucified with him two thieves: one on the right hand, and one on the left.

 39 And they that passed by, blasphemed him, wagging their heads,

 40 And saying: Vah, thou that destroyest the temple of God, and in three days dost rebuild it: save thy own self: if thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.

 41 In like manner also the chief priests, with the scribes and ancients, mocking, said:

 42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the king of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.

 43 He trusted in God; let him now deliver him if he will have him; for he said: I am the Son of God.

 44 And the selfsame thing the thieves also, that were crucified with him, reproached him with.

 45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over the whole earth, until the ninth hour.

 46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying: Eli, Eli, lamma sabacthani? that is, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

 47 And some that stood there and heard, said: This man calleth Elias.

 48 And immediately one of them running took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar; and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.

 49 And the others said: Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to deliver him.

 50 And Jesus again crying with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.

 51 And behold the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top even to the bottom, and the earth quaked, and the rocks were rent.

 52 And the graves were opened: and many bodies of the saints that had slept arose,

 53 And coming out of the tombs after his resurrection, came into the holy city, and appeared to many.

 54 Now the centurion and they that were with him watching Jesus, having seen the earthquake, and the things that were done, were sore afraid, saying: Indeed this was the Son of God.

 

Jn 19.:16-37

16 Then therefore he delivered him to them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him forth.

17 And bearing his own cross, he went forth to that place which is called Calvary, but in Hebrew Golgotha.

18 Where they crucified him, and with him two others, one on each side, and Jesus in the midst.

19 And Pilate wrote a title also, and he put it upon the cross. And the writing was: JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS.

20 This title therefore many of the Jews did read: because the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, in Greek, and in Latin.

21 Then the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate: Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am the King of the Jews.

22 Pilate answered: What I have written, I have written.

23 The soldiers therefore, when they had crucified him, took his garments, (and they made four parts, to every soldier a part,) and also his coat. Now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.

24 They said then one to another: Let us not cut it, but let us cast lots for it, whose it shall be; that the scripture might be fulfilled, saying: They have parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture they have cast lot. And the soldiers indeed did these things.

25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus, his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalen.

26 When Jesus therefore had seen his mother and the disciple standing whom he loved, he saith to his mother: Woman, behold thy son.

27 After that, he saith to the disciple: Behold thy mother. And from that hour, the disciple took her to his own.

28 Afterwards, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, said: I thirst.

29 Now there was a vessel set there full of vinegar. And they, putting a sponge full of vinegar and hyssop, put it to his mouth.

30 Jesus therefore, when he had taken the vinegar, said: It is consummated. And bowing his head, he gave up the ghost.

31 Then the Jews, (because it was the parasceve,) that the bodies might not remain on the cross on the sabbath day, (for that was a great sabbath day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.

32 The soldiers therefore came; and they broke the legs of the first, and of the other that was crucified with him.

33 But after they were come to Jesus, when they saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs.

34 But one of the soldiers with a spear opened his side, and immediately there came out blood and water.

35 And he that saw it, hath given testimony, and his testimony is true. And he knoweth that he saith true; that you also may believe.

36 For these things were done, that the scripture might be fulfilled: You shall not break a bone of him.

37 And again another scripture saith: They shall look on him whom they pierced.

Pray the Crucifixion
