Prayer Of Saint Bridget # 5 (Prayer # 5)
Say one "Our Father..."
Say one "Hail Mary..."
0 Jesus! Mirror of eternal splendor,
remember the sadness which Thou experienced,
when contemplating in the light of Thy Divinity
the predestination of those who would be saved
by the merits of Thy Sacred Passion,
Thou didst see at the same time,
the great multitude of reprobates
who would be damned for their sins,
and Thou didst complain bitterly of those hopeless lost and unfortunate sinners.
Through this abyss of compassion and pity,
and especially through the goodness
which Thou displayed to the good thief
when Thou saidst to him:
"This day, thou shalt be with Me in Paradise."
I beg of Thee, 0 Sweet Jesus,
that at the hour of my death,
Thou wilt show me mercy.
