After this return to the high altar and, to complete this
devotion, say the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be
five times in honor of the Passion of Jesus Christ.


Behold, O kind and most sweet Jesus,  * I cast myself upon my knees in Thy sight,  * and with the most fervent desire of my soul,  * I pray and beseech Thee that Thou wouldst impress upon my heart  * lively sentiments of faith, hope and charity,  * with true contrition for my sins  * and a firm purpose of amendment;  * while with deep affection and grief of soul,  * I ponder within myself and mentally contemplate Thy five wounds,  * having before my eyes the words which David the prophet  * put on Thy lips concerning Thee:  * "They have pierced My hands and My feet,  * they have numbered all My bones."

At the end, one Our Father and Hail Mary, at least should be said for the intentions of the Sovereign Pontiff; this will fullfill the requirements for a plenary indulgence connected to this devotion -- so long as a person also fulfills the other requirements. (See "How to Gain a Partial or Plenary Indulgence" by making this devotion.)
