I am sure I am not alone in thinking of the very last moments Our Savior endured on His Cross of Redemption for us – This is what went through me this morning – His last Heart Beat – His last Breath – His cry to the Father on feeling abandoned – His last Tear – The realization in such pain of separation that this was the last time in being alive on earth, He would gaze on His mother Mary, and Mary Madeline, and John the Beloved Disciple, the one who reclined on His Heart at the Last Supper hearing those loving Heartbeats of His Savior and dearest Friend, His very God!
And all the ones who love and believe Him, especially His Apostles.
+ And of course all His other faithful Apostles and friends present at that moment,seeing His last agonies on this Cross to save mankind. Can one imagine what went through the Heart of the Savior? In these moments? And how He knew the terrible anguish and grief of all the ones seeing these last moments of His Life on earth…and how they would all be in such sorrow (!) having Him no longer with them? Still…in that Believing in faith, what He said to them…the Three Days. I will Arise!
Who could measure this sorrow from Jesus, knowing this sorrow of separation, (and in such agony) and the ones who loved Him with all their lives, ..all their hearts and love? To see the Christ, The Father’s only Son suffering so, and now in a few moments, giving up the Ghost as is said. The pain of this separation, so final to them – and all He suffered in this, yet they trusting with all they have, that He will arise on the Third Day.
So here is a prayer composed to offer to the Eternal Father – and again offer this for whatever intention/s you have my dears. As I said, I offer it for conversions of the most harden sinners, that they will accept the pursuing of Jesus Christ to win them in the grace He gives, to let them know they CAN be forgiven. To not despair in their sins – to turn to the Merciful Savior – that He awaits them with open arms if they want to be forgiven – no one is exempt from this Mercy! No one. No one.
A PRAYER OFFERED TO THE ETERNAL LOVING FATHER IN HONOR OF THE MERITS OF HIS SON’S LAST MOMENTS AND THOUGHTS ON EARTH +
Eternal Loving Father, Your Son Jesus Christ suffered terrible agonies on His Cross of Redemption for us + I now offer to You Father, the last moments of His suffering before He left this earth to go Home and be with You + Final thoughts, final merits, final agonies of the price He paid for us to go Home to You – A price He did not owe and one we could not pay +
Father Dearest I offer You Your Sons final Last Words, especially His cry of feeling abandoned and forsaken, this very special suffering of His Soul – His last Heart Beat and Breath that separated Him from Heaven and earth…His last ounce of Blood shed for us, His last twinge of horrible pain suffered as well. His thirst, His fatigue, His last sigh – His last tear drop … and also Father, His last loving, merciful gaze on the ones who loved Him so much in this life, His life on earth for 33 years – His mother Mary, His Beloved Disciple John, Mary Magdeline – all the ones there, who were sorrowing in His departure from this life – His Apostles, and all the other faithful ones/friends He had made during those years, He lived among them, imparting spiritual life to their souls and hearts. And now going through the last pangs of offering to You, for the salvation of their souls and the souls of all mankind.
And not just their agonizing sorrow Loving Father, at seeing Him take His last breath, knowing He was leaving them… but for a Glorious Cause, their Salvation….but also the indescribable sorrow the God Man has now piercing His own Soul and Heart as the reality of the distress of Him leaving them! He knew all they felt at His departing + descended upon Him in such bitter sweetness of parting + Yet in His Heart, the overwhelming Cause of Why – He had done this, pierces His Soul and Heart – knowing that in three days, all will be Accomplished of What He came to Do!
All His life He only wanted to do Your Will, Eternal Father. Your Will.
So I offer all these merits to You of Your Son’s suffering on His Cross to save us, Loving Father – You know the intentions of my heart, of the ones I am concerned for – and pray Your Grace over them for whatever it is they need, in healing of body and mind or for a loved one suffering….conversions, pure contrition and sorrow for their sins, and not let their sinfulness keep them from the loving arms stretched out to them in bottomless mercy….that they realize Jesus wants to forgive them and have no fear to throw themselves into those arms of mercy… But especially to love You, with all their hearts and souls – indeed the whole Trinity with all that is in them, made in Your Likeness and Image +
Thank You Father for listening to my prayer and most of all for Your Beloved Son Jesus Christ’s unfathomable sufferings who died for my sins and soul, forgiving me and opening the doors of Heaven, so I may come home to You. My Father also. Amen and amen –
