Praying before the Holy Cross

O Lord Jesus, by your sufferings, crucifixion and resurrection, you give us hope. you redeemed the only son of the widow of Naim, the paralytic of Bethsaida, Bartimaeus the blind beggar, the hunch backed woman, the sinful woman and the good thief on the cross.

Dear  Lord  Jesus, receive  our  sins,  brokenness,  weaknesses,  unemployment,  financial problems,  sickness,  mental  tensions, family  problems,  and  all  our  failures and  save us by your  holy  cross.

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed by thy name. thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb JESUS Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall  be, world without end. Amen.

This was a bonus in that I never thought we would be here

An experience that allowed me to act like a real devotee

In this case, to pray before the Holy Cross

With oil and candles as part of the whole experience

Praise God!
