O Jesus, Saint Lutgardis had a deep prayer life that led to a special devotion for Your sacred wounds. In her late teens she received her first vision, and later during ecstasies, blood sometimes dripped from her forehead. I ask her to obtain for me through her prayers a higher level of devotion to Your Passion. Help me to see Your suffering when I look upon a crucifix or receive the Eucharist. And teach me to understand more fully that it is through Your wounds I am healed and without Your death there would be no resurrection. Take my own wounds, O Jesus, and give me new life. Saint Lutgardis, pray for me. Amen.
