Sorrowful Mysteries with the Scriptures

The Agony in the Garden:

“Then he said to them, “My soul is sorrowful even to death. Remain here and keep watch with me. He advanced a little and fell prostrate in prayer, saying, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me; yet, not as I will, but as you will.” (Mt. 26:38-39)

The Scourging at the Pillar:

“Yet it was our pain that he bore, our sufferings he endured. We thought of him as stricken, struck down by God, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our sins, crushed for our iniquity. He bore the punishment that makes us whole; by his wounds, we were healed.” (Is. 53:4-5)

The Crowning with Thorns:

“And the soldiers wove a crown out of thorns and placed it on his head, and clothed him in a purple cloak, and they came to him and said, “Hail, King of the Jews!” And they struck him repeatedly.” (John 19:2-3)

The Carrying of the Cross:

“As they led him away, they took hold of a certain Simon, a Cyrene, who was coming in from the country; and after laying the Cross on him, they made him carry it behind Jesus. A large crowd of people followed Jesus, including many women who mourned and lamented him.” (Luke 23:26-27)

The Crucifixion:

“Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commend my spirit”; and when he had said this, he breathed his last. The centurion who witnessed what had happened glorified God and said, “This man was innocent* beyond doubt.” (Luke 23: 46-47)
