Prayers from Heaven
It is related in the annals of Clairvaux that St. Bernard asked our Lord which was His greatest unrecorded suffering, and our Lord answered: “I had on My shoulder, while I bore My cross on the Way Of Sorrows, a grievous wound, which was more painful than the others, and which is not recorded by men. Honour this wound with your devotion, and I will grant you whatsoever you do ask through its virtue and merit. And in regard to all those who shall venerate this wound, I will remit to them all their venial sins, and will no longer remember their mortal sins.”
O loving Jesus, meek Lamb of God, I a miserable sinner, salute and worship the most Sacred Wound of Your Shoulder on which You did bear Your heavy Cross, which so tore Your Flesh and laid bare Your Bones as to inflict on You anguish greater than any other wound of Your Most Blessed Body. I adore You, O Jesus most sorrowful: I praise and glorify You, and give You thanks for this most sacred and painful Wound, beseeching You by the exceeding pain, and by the crushing burden of Your heavy Cross to be merciful to me, a sinner, to forgive me all my mortal and venial sins, and lead me on towards Heaven, along the way of Your Cross.
This next prayer was revealed by Our Lord to a Carmelite Nun of Tours in 1843, in reparation for blasphemy.
May the most holy, most sacred, most adorable, most mysterious and unutterable Name of God, be always praised, blessed, loved, adored and glorified in Heaven, on earth, and under the earth, by all the creatures of God, and by the Sacred Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ in the most Holy Sacrament of the altar.
