O God, who by the Passion of Christ your Son, our Lord
abolished the death inherited from ancient sin
by every succeeding generation,
grant that just as, being conformed to Him,
we have borne by the law of nature
the image of the man of earth,
so by the sanctification of grace
we may bear the image of the Man of Heaven.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer for Friday of the Passion of the Lord (Good Friday)
