Second Sorrowful Mystery
Scourging at the pillar:
Our Lord suffered a cruel scourging at the pillar, and was struck heavy blows that tore His flesh.
O most sorrowful mother, Mary, I meditate on the mystery of the scourging of our Lord. At Pilate's command, Your Divine Son was stripped of His garments and bound to a pillar. He was lacerated from head to foot with cruel scourges and His flesh torn away until His mortified body could bear no more.
