"O Judge of the living and the dead,
who rewards and punishes,
this morning we raise our prayers and thoughts to you.
We share in your sufferings when you appeared before the judges,
when you played the role of the accused,
and were dragged from court to court.
You lived among us and could not be conquered by sin.
May we erase hatred,
purify our thoughts, and follow your teachings.
Thus, we shall receive pardon in this world
and on the day of judgement receive your mercy,
and glorify you, your Father, and your Holy Spirit,
for ever. Amen"
Hoosoyo(Sedro)" Prayer of Forgiveness"
"O Incarnate Word,
Son of Mary and Son of the Father,
on this day, the greatest of all history, you appeared before Pilate,
you, who are seated at the right hand of the Father.
You, remained silent before the judges,
you, through whose word everything exists.
You walked the path to Golgotha carrying the wood of the cross,
you who were seated on a chariot of cherubim,
draped in brilliant jewels.
On your head is entwined a crown of thorns,
you, whose head the heavens decorate with stars.
On the cross you are given vinegar and gall to drink,
you , who gave us your blood, the source of life.
You die on the cross at the hands of your executioners,
your, who give life to all the living.
Therefore, O God made man,
we ask to share in your humanity and divinity, your death and your life,
your scorn and your glory in this world and the next,
so that we may glorify you, your Father, and your Holy Spirit,
for ever. Amen"
The Trisagion is not part of Safro, but I think its a beautiful and holy prayer that I should add up here as well.
Trisagion(said three times)
Holy Might One
Holy Immortal One
O Christ Crucified for us, have mercy on us."
These are just some of the prayers for today , not the whole office. If you look up on google for the maronite podcast, or the hiddenpearl podcast, you can find a podcast of the entire Safro.
