An Unworthy Slave to Jesus Through Mary
I, your unworthy servant, your slave, am deserving of each lash that you received during your scourging ten-fold. Each strike and each blow that the Romans lashed upon you should be mine. You did not deserve any of the punishment upon which you received, yet you willingly took upon this Cross, so that I may not have to receive this beating.
I should be the one who should be tied upon that pillar. I should be the one upon that cross. Your precious blood does not deserve to be spilled, yet you love me so much that You will it. I deserve this punishment for the numerous times that I have failed you and sinned. For the times that I have spat in your face like the Pharisees and Sanhedrin.
Each blow You received I should have received to atone for the sins and injustices I have committed. Yet as your slave, I do not receive any merits for these. Like you Lord, I offer each blow up for the salvation of others. I give each merit to Your Mother to do as she pleases, for she, being free from Original Sin, is in perfect unity with Your will, and knows where each grace should go.
Please forgive me for each sin I have committed, and assist me to grow in holiness, so that I may love you with my whole heart, and to do Your will, so that upon my death, I may be united with you in Heaven.
