YES, 5,480 WOUNDS WERE INFLICTED ON CHRIST JESUS
St. Bridget had been desirous for a long time to know the number of blows our Lord received during His Passion. He one day appeared to her and said, “I received 5,480 blows on my body. If you wish to honor them in some way. say 15 Our Fathers, 15 Hail Marys with the following prayers (which he taught her) for a whole year. When the year is up, you will have honored each one of my wounds.” By honoring the wounds of Jesus, reciting these prayers for a whole year, Jesus promises are: 1) delivering 15 souls from one’s lineage from purgatory, 2) 15 souls of his lineage will be confirmed and preserved in Grace, 3) 15 sinners of one’s lineage will be converted. 4) Whoever recites these prayers will obtain the first degree of perfection. 5) 15 days before honorers death, I will give him my precious body in order that he may escape eternal starvation; I will give him my precious blood to drink lest he thirst eternally. 6) 15 days before his death, he will conceive a deep contrition for all his sins and a perfect knowledge of them. 7) I will place before him, my victorious cross for his help and defense against the attacks of his enemies. 8) Before his death, I will come with my dearest and beloved Mother. 9) I will graciously receive his soul, and will lead it into eternal joys. 10) And having led it there, I will give him a special draught from the fountain of my deity, something I will not do for those who have not recited my Prayers. 11) Let it be known that whoever may have been living in a state of mortal sin for 30 years, but who will recite devoutly, or have the intention to recite these Prayers, the Lord will forgive him all his sins. 12) I will defend him against evil temptations. 13) I will preserve and guard his five senses. 14) I will preserve him from a sudden death. 15) His soul will be delivered from eternal death. 16) He will obtain all he asks for from God and the Blessed Virgin. 17) If he has lived all his life doing his own will and he is to die the next day, his life will be prolonged. 18) Every time one recites these Prayers, he will gain 100 days indulgences. 19) He will be assured of being joined to the supreme Choir of Angels. 20) Whoever teaches these prayers to another, will have continual joy and merit which will last throughout eternity. 21) There where these Prayers are being said or will may be said in the future, God will be present there by His grace.
