|The scourging of Jesus, exterior of La Sagrada Familia Basilica, Barcelona, Spain.|
Search out our hearts, O God, and purge us of violence, anger, resentment, and hatred.
Refresh and renew our souls by your Incarnate Love, our Lord Jesus Christ, and rest your Spirit upon us, we pray. Teach us how to reflect the power of love into the darkest corners we have created, and walk in the way of Christ.
Strengthen all gripped by pain, anxiety, or hopelessness, O Holy One, and send your holy angels to tend them. Awaken our spirits to your eternal presence within us, O Savior, and make your face to shine upon those we now name.
