et inclinato capite dixisti, Consummatum est. Per\ hanc angustiam et dolorem miserere mei in ul\tima consummacione exitus <spiritus> mei cum anima mea\ anxiata est et spiritus meus conturbatus fuerit <et conturbata>.\

Pater noster.

Prayer, O Ihesu unigenite.



The fourteenth of fifteen prayers of St Bridget to Jesus Christ (Oratio xiiii, HE, p 79). She invokes the memory of his words to his father: 'Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit' (Luke, 23:46). She asks that through his death, he may help her to resist the devil, the world and the flesh; that being dead to the world she may be alive to him; and that in the hour of her death he may bring her wandering spirit to him.


O Ihesu unigenite al\tissimi patris splendor et figura sub\stancie eius. Memento subnixe <illius obnixe> com\mendacionis qua patri spiritum commendasti dicens\ Pater in manus tuas commendo spiritum meum\ et in lacerato corpore ruptoque corde cum valido\ clamore patefactis visceribus misericordie tue pro nobis\ redimendis exspirasti. Per hanc preciosissimam <preciosum>\ mortem tuam precor <deprecor> te rex sanctorum conforta me ad\ resistendum diabolo mundo carni et sanguini <et carni>\ ut mundo mortuus tibi soli vivam et in no\vissima hora exitus mei suscipe me ad te re\vertentem spiritum meum exulem et peregrinum. Amen.\

Pater noster.

Ave.


Prayer, O Ihesu vitis.



The last of fifteen prayers of St Bridget to Jesus Christ (Oratio xv, HE, p 80; SA, p 252). She invokes the memory of the outpouring of his blood, when he trod the winepress ...


O Ihesu vitis vera et\ fecunda Memento supereffluentis et\ superhabundantis <abundantis> effusionis sangui\nis tui quem tu sicut <de> botro expresso copiose\
