P. 69

Liturgical performance only
PRIEST : Let us pray.
Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the governor’s headquarters,
and they gathered the whole cohort around him.
They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, and after twisting a crown of thorns
into a crown, they put it on his head. They put a reed in his right hand and knelt before him, and mocked him saying,
ALL : Hail, King of the Jews!
PRIEST : They spat on him, and took the reed and struck him on the head. After mocking him, they stripped him of the robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him away to crucify him . . .
