Pray the Third Sorrowful Mystery

Jesus is crowned with thornsThe crowning with thorns
Our Father
The soldiers took Jesus inside the courtyard of the governor's palace and called together the rest of the company. (Mark 15,16) - Hail Mary

The soldiers made a crown out of thorny branches and put it on his head. (John 19,2) - Hail Mary

Then they put a purple robe on him and came to him and said, "Long live the King of the Jews!" (John 19,3) - Hail Mary

And they went up and slapped him. (John 19,3) - Hail Mary

Pilate went out once more and said to the crowd, "Look, I will bring him out here to let you see that I cannot find any reason to condemn him." (John 19,4) - Hail Mary

So Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. (John 19,5) - Hail Mary

Pilate said to them, "Look, here is the man!" (John 19,5) - Hail Mary

When the chief priests and Temple guards saw him, they shouted, "Crucify him! Crucify him!" (John 19,8) - Hail Mary

Pilate said to them, "You take him, then, and crucify him. I find no reason to condemn him." (John 19,6) - Hail Mary

But the crowd shouted back, "If you set him free, that means that you are not the Emperor's friend. Anyone who claims to be a king is a rebel against the Emperor!" (John 19,12) - 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.
