Prayer to the Shoulder Wound of Our Lord Jesus Christ
Holy Shoulder Wound of Our Lord Jesus Christ
Our Lord told St. Bernard that the wound that caused Him the most pain of all His wounds was the sacred wound on His shoulder. Yet it is not recorded anywhere. If we honor His most sacred and sorrowful shoulder wound He will remit all venial sins and forget our mortal sins! How wonderful!

Bishop of Springfield
O Loving Jesus, meek Lamb of God, I 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 Thee, O Jesus most sorrowful; I praise and glorify Thee, and give Thee thanks for this most sacred and painful Wound, beseeching Thee by that exceeding pain, and by 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 Thy Cross. Amen.
