Prayer to the Wound in the Shoulder

O most loving Jesus, meek Lamb of God I,
a 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 towards Heaven along the Way of Thy Cross.


Jesus... Thy Cross that Tore Thy Flesh

Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

Saint Bernard
of Clairvaux

All related in the annals of Clairvaux in France...

Saint Bernard asked Our Lord which was His greatest
unrecorded suffering.  Our Lord answered to Saint Bernard:

"I had on My Shoulders, while I bore My Cross on the Way of Sorrow, a grevious Wound which, was more painful than the others, and which is not recorded by men.  Honour this Wound with thy devotion, and I will grant thee whatsover thou dost ask through its virtue and merit, and in regard to all those who shall venerate this Wound I will remit to them all their venial sins, and will no longer remember their mortal sins".

Imprimatur: Thomas M. O'Leary,

Brief Story about Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

Saint Bernard was born of noble parentage in Burgundy, France,
in the castle of Fontaines near Dijon.

Saint Bernard was very devoted:

  • To God, God the Father... Son, Jesus.
  • He was devout with his faith, his Roman Catholic Religion.

Saint Bernard was a Franciscan, Monk and a Priest. 
Saint Bernard had many friends.  He was so religious with
his Roman Catholic Religion that thirty of his friends also went to be monks and Priests.  All this took place in 1113.

Saint Bernard entire family was devoted to Jesus.
First his Father became a priest.  Later all of his brothers joined
Saint Bernard in his monastery.  Saint Bernard only had one sister.
And later on his sister too became a nun.

Saint Bernard was so devoted to his Roman Catholic Religion
and was loved by many souls, they followed Saint Bernard... Jesus.
Saint Bernard was a good Priest and a pure role model for men
to join the Priesthood.  A good Priest makes many souls more devoted, and strengthening their believes in their Roman Catholic Faith.  Also a good Priest brings more non-Catholic souls to the Catholic Religion.  Saint Bernard was that Priest.
Saint Bernard was that soul.

Again, a Perfect role model for men to join the Priesthood of the Roman Catholic Religion.

Saint Bernard built a great monastery in a valley called Clairvaux.
Many souls, hundreds of brave souls came and joined the monastery.

Saint Bernard of Clairvaux founded Fontenay Abbey in 1118 and it is one of the oldest Cistercian monasteries in France where the monks spent their time between prayers with mining iron.

At that time the Turks hated the Christians.  They had a strong
army with many solders.  Saint Bernard led the Christian armies
to fight the Turks.  Saint Bernard taught the soldiers how to be
fine knights.  The soldiers were called the Knights of the Temple.
Saint Bernard during the battles carried only a crucifix.
Saint Bernard and his Knights of the Temple defeated the Turks.
Even during these battles, he wrote beautiful songs to the soldiers,
some of them we sing to this day.

He died on August 20, 1153.

Saint Bernard Feast day is August 20th.
