Jesus is bound to a pillar and cruelly scourged until His whole body is covered with deep wounds. The Lamb of God offers His suffering for the sins of mankind. Jesus suffers so much in His sacred flesh to satisfy, especially, for sins of the flesh. The prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled: "He was wounded for our iniquities, He was bruised for our sins." Father, by the merits of Jesus in this painful scourging, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
