Who as an example of humility for the human race
to follow caused our Savior
to take flesh and submit to the Cross,
graciously grant that we may heed His lesson
of patient suffering and so merit a share in his Resurrection.
Who lives and reigns with You
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever. Amen.

“Have you no fear of God, for you are subject to the same condemnation?
And indeed, we have been condemned justly,
for the sentence we received corresponds to our crimes,
but this man has done nothing criminal.”
Then he said,
“Jesus, remember (μνήσθητι, mnesthsti) me when you come into your kingdom.”
He replied to him,
“Amen, I say to you,
today you will be with me in Paradise. (Luke 23:39-43)””
