“Precisely at the moment in which the altar, by the presence of the Divine Victim, becomes a mystical Mount Calvary, the sublime and sacred scene of the Passion of the Saviour, crucified and covered with painful wounds, should present itself before the eyes and mind of priest and of people in the most striking manner.” – Fr. N. Gihr

“They have pierced my hands and my feet” (psalm 22:16).
Prayer: “Lord Jesus Christ, who wouldst for my sake be nailed on the cross and on the same didst fasten the handwriting of sin and death that was against me; pierce, I beseech Thee, my body with Thy holy fear, that, firmly adhering to Thy precepts, I may forever be fastened by cords of love with Thee to Thy Cross.” Amen.
