OF THE MYSTERIES ON THE CROSS

John 19 [25-37].

First Point. First: He spoke seven words on the Cross: He prayed for those who were crucifying Him; He pardoned the thief; He recommended St. John to His Mother and His Mother to St. John; He said with a loud voice: “‘I thirst,’” and they gave Him gall and vinegar; He said that He was abandoned; He said: “It is consummated”; He said: “Father, into Thy hands I commend My spirit!”

Second Point. Second: The sun was darkened, the stones broken, the graves opened, the veil of the Temple was rent in two from above below.3030    Rent in two from above below is in St. Ignatius’ handwriting, correcting torn in pieces, which is crossed out.

Third Point. Third: They blaspheme Him, saying: “‘Thou wert He who destroyest the Temple of God; come down from the Cross.”‘ His garments were divided; His side, struck with the lance, sent forth water and blood.
