Passio Domini (The Passion of the Lord)
(Prayer for the Sanctification of Priests)
Just as Our Lord Jesus Christ himself was strengthened by the heavenly Father by the means of an angel to bear the redemptive passion (cf. Lk 22:43), so also the members of the Opus Angelorum rely upon the help of the holy angels .
Following Christ with expiating charity for the sanctification and salvation of souls, and especially for priests.
Thus, there is in the Opus Angelorum the pious practice of the “Passio Domini”, that is a weekly time of prayer (Thursday evening and Friday afternoon) in which the members unite themselves spiritually with the Redeemer in the mystery of his salvific passion.
Christ crucified and risen is the center, both for men as well as for the holy angels.
