Pray the Second Sorrowful Mystery

The scourging at the pillar
Jesus is scourged
Our Father
Early in the morning Jesus was taken from Caiphas' house to the governor's palace. (John 18,28) - Hail Mary

Pilate went outside and asked, "What do you accuse this man of?" (John 18,29) - Hail Mary

Their answer was, "We would not have brought him to you if he had not committed a crime." (John 18,30) - Hail Mary

Pilate went back into the palace and called Jesus. "Are you the king of the Jews?" he asked him. (John 18,33) - Hail Mary

Jesus said, "My kingdom does not belong to this world." (John 18,36) - Hail Mary

Pilate asked him, "Are you a king then?" (John 18,37) - Hail Mary

Jesus answered, "You say I am a king. I was born and came into the world for this one purpose, to speak about the truth. Whoever belongs to the truth listens to me." (John 18, 37) - Hail Mary

Then Pilate went outside to the people and said to them, "I cannot find any reason to condemn him. But according to the custom you have, I always set free a prisoner for you during the Passover. Do you want me to set free for you the king of the Jews?" (John 18, 39) - Hail Mary

They answered him with a shout, "No, not him! We want Barabbas!" (Barabbas was a bandit.) (John 18, 40) - Hail Mary

Then Pilate took Jesus and had him whipped. (John 19,1) - Hail Mary

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.
