I MYSTERY: Jesus' agony in Gethsemane
Came from the upper room, Jesus went away, to the Mount of Olives, the disciples followed him. Arrived at the place said to them: Pray that you may not enter into temptation. Then he withdrew from them about a stone's knelt and prayed: Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me; However it is not done mine, but yours will. And when he rose him. In agony, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat became like drops of blood falling down to earth. He rose from his disciples went and found them sleeping for sorrow. He said to them: Why sleep? Rise and pray that you may not enter into temptation. While he was still speaking, behold a crowd, leading them one who was called Judas, one of the twelve. Approached Jesus to kiss him. Jesus said to him: Judas, with a kiss betray the Son of man? One of those who were with him ... struck the high priest's servant, cutting off his right ear. But Jesus said, No more of this!. And he touched the ear healed him. Then Jesus said to those who came against him, the chief priests and captains of the temple guards and elders leaving you with swords and clubs as against a robber? Every day I was with you in the temple and have not laid hands on me, but this is your hour, is the empire of darkness. After this, led him away and they did enter the high priest's house. (Lk 22,39-54)

In the morning the chief priests and the elders, the scribes and the whole Sanhedrin, after taking advice, put in chains, he led and delivered him to Pilate. Pilate then took a question: are you the king of the Jews? He replied: You say. The chief priests, meanwhile, moved many of the allegations. Pilate questioned him again: Do not answer anything? See how many things you accuse! But Jesus did not answer anything, so it was left amazed Pilate. For the festival he used to release a prisoner to their request. This called Barabbas was in prison with the rebels in the tumult that had committed a murder. The crowd noticed and began to ask what he ever gave. Then Pilate said to them: Do you wish that you release the king of the Jews? He knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy. But the chief priests stir up the crowd because they rather release Barabbas. Pilate answered, What I will do then what you call the King of the Jews? And again they shouted: Crucify him!. But Pilate said to them, What evil has he done? Then they cried the more, Crucify him! And Pilate, wishing to satisfy the crowd, released for them Barabbas and having scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified. (Mark 15,1-15)

III MYSTERY: Jesus Crown of Thorns
Pilate then had Jesus taken and had it flaggelare. And the soldiers plaited a crown of thorns, put it on his head and put him in a purple robe, so he was in front and said, Hail, King of the Jews! It gave him blows. Meanwhile, Pilate went out again and said to them: Behold, I will lead me out, because you know that I can not find any fault in him. Then Jesus went out carrying the crown of thorns and the purple cloak. And Pilate said to them: Behold the man. (Jn 19,1-5) Our Father, Ave Maria (10 times) Glory, my Jesus ...

While led by Jesus, took a certain Simon of Cyrene, who came from the country, and him and put the cross to carry it behind Jesus, following him a great multitude of people and of women who bewailed and lamented him . But Jesus turning to them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. Behold, the days are coming when you will say: Blessed are the barren and the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never gave suck. Then begin to say to the mountains, "Fall on us! and to the hills, "Cover! For if this so the green wood, what will happen to dry? Were conducted with him even the criminals to be executed. (Lk 23,26-32)

V ° MYSTERY: The Crucifixion and death of Jesus'
Took Jesus to the place of Golgotha and offered him wine mixed with myrrh, but he is not wanted. Then they crucified him and divided his garments by drawing lots on them what each should take. There were nine in the morning when they crucified him, and entry by reason of the sentence saying: The king of the Jews. With him they crucified two robbers, one on his right and one to the left. I insulted the passers and, shaking his head, exclaimed: Hey, you who destroy the temple and rebuilt in three days save yourself and come down from the cross! Likewise the chief priests with the scribes mocked him being said, He saved others can not save himself! Christ, the King of Israel descend now from the cross, because we see and think. And even those who were crucified with him insulted him. Come noon, it was darkness over the whole land until three in the afternoon. The three Jesus cried with loud voice: My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Some of those present, hearing this, saying, Behold, Elijah calls. One ran a dunk and a sponge, postala on a cane, gave the drink, saying: Wait, let's see if Elijah comes to remove it from the cross. But Jesus gives a loud cry, he breathed his last. The veil of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. Then the centurion who stood in front, saw the end in that way, said, "Truly this man was the Son of God. (Mk 15,22-39)
