Saint Bridget's Prayers for 12 Years

O Jesus, now I wish to pray the Lord's Prayer seven times in unity with the love with which You sanctified this prayer in Your heart. Take it from my lips into Your Divine Heart. Improve and complete it so much that it brings as much honour and joy to the Trinity as You granted it on earth with this prayer. May these pour upon Your Holy Humanity in Glorification to Your Painful Wounds and the Precious Blood that You spilled from them.

1. The Circumcision   Our Father .... Hail Mary ....

Eternal Father, through Mary's unblemished hands and the Divine Heart of Jesus, I offer You the first wounds, the first pains and the first Bloodshed as atonement for my and all of humanity's sins of youth, as protection against the first mortal sin, especially among my relatives.

2. The Suffering on the Mount of Olives   Our Father .... Hail Mary ....

Eternal Father, through Mary's unblemished hands and the Divine Heart of Jesus, I offer You the terrifying suffering of Jesus' Heart on the Mount of Olives and every drop of His Bloody Sweat as atonement for my and all of humanity's sins of the heart, as protection against such sins and for the spreading of Divine and brotherly love.

3. The Flogging   Our Father .... Hail Mary ....

Eternal Father, through Mary's unblemished hands and the Divine Heart of Jesus, I offer You the many thousands of wounds, the gruesome pains and the Precious Blood of the Flogging as atonement for my and all of humanity's sins of the Flesh, as protection against such sins and the preservation of innocence, especially among my relatives.

4. The Crowning of Thorns   Our Father .... Hail Mary ....

Eternal Father, through Mary's unblemished hands and the Divine Heart of Jesus, I offer You the wounds, the pains and the Precious Blood of Jesus' Holy Head from the Crowning of Thorns as atonement for my and all of humanity's sins of the Spirit, as protection against such sins and for the spreading of Christ's Kingdom here on earth.

5. The Carrying of the Cross   Our Father .... Hail Mary ....

Eternal Father, through Mary's unblemished hands and the Divine Heart of Jesus, I offer You the sufferings on the Way of The Cross, especially His Holy Wound on His Shoulder and its precious Blood as atonement for my and all of humanity's rebellion against the Cross, every grumbling against Your Holy Arrangements and all other sins of the tongue, as protection against such sins and for true love of the Cross.

6. The Crucifixion of Jesus   Our Father .... Hail Mary ....

Eternal Father, through Mary's unblemished hands and the Divine Heart of Jesus, I offer You Your Son on the Cross, His Nailing and Raising, His Wounds on the Hands and Feet and the three streams of His Precious Blood that poured from these for us, His extreme tortures of the Body and Soul, His precious death and its non-bleeding Renewal in all Holy Masses on earth as atonement for all wounds against vows and regulations within the Orders, as reparaion for my and all of the world's sins, for the sick and the dying, for all holy priests and laymen, for the Holy Father's intentions toward the restoration of Christian Families,  for the strengthening of Faith, for our country and unity among nations in Christ and His Church as well as for the Diaspora.

7. The Piercing of the Side of Jesus   Our Father .... Hail Mary ....

Eternal Father, accept as worthy, for the needs of the Holy Church and as atonement for the sins of all Mankind, the Precious Blood and Water which poured from the wound of Jesus' Divine Heart. Be gracious and merciful toward us. Blood of Christ, the last precious content of His Holy Heart, wash me of all my and other's guilt of sin! Water from the Side of Christ; wash me clean of all punishments for sin and extinguish the flames of Purgatory for me and for all the Poor Souls. AMEN
