THE EXALTATION OF THE CROSS. Prayers.
As we celebrate the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, let us “glory in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, in whom is our salvation, life and resurrection, through whom we are saved and delivered.”
May Christ be in our mind, in our lips, in our heart, in our actions, in our life. But if this noble and holy desire were to come true, let us not forget that to follow Christ and to live His life necessarily require carrying His Cross and all that it entails, not with mere resignation, but with joyful acceptance and for Love.
“O God, who willed that your Only Begotten Son should undergo the Cross to save the human race, grant, we pray, that we who have known his mystery on earth may merit the grace of his redemption in heaven. Through our Lord Jesus Christ Your Son, who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever. Amen.”
