Salutation of the wound in the Shoulder of Jesus
Salutation of the wound in the Shoulder of Jesus 'O most loving Jesus, meekest Lamb of God, I, a miserable sinner, salute and worship the most Sacred wound of thy Shoulder on which Thou didst bear Thy heavy Cross, which so tore Thy Flesh and laid bare Thy bones as to inflict on Thee an anguish greater than any other wound of Thy most Blessed Body. I adore and glorify Thee and give Thee thanks for this most sacred and most painful Wound. Beseeching Thee by that exceeding pain, and the crushing burden of Thy heavy Cross, to be merciful to me, a sinner, to forgive me all my mortal and venial sins, and to lead me on towards Heaven along the way of the Cross'.
