Every member of thy holy flesh endured dishonor for us.
Thy head — the thorns.
Thy face — the spitting.
Thy cheeks — the buffeting.
Thy mouth — the taste of vinegar mingled with gall.
Thine ears — the impious blasphemies.
Thy back — the scourge.
Thy hand — the reed.
Thy whole body — extension upon the cross.
Thy joints — the nails.
Thy side — the spear.
By thy sufferings, thou hast set us free from suffering.
In thy love for man, thou didst stoop down to raise us up.
O almighty Savior, have mercy on us.
The Life of All is placed in a tomb. A most blessed Holy Friday from your friends at the Onion Dome.
