Start Novena to the Exaltation of the Holy Cross Today! September 6, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in awesomeness, Eucharist, General Catholic, Glory, Grace, Interior Life, Novenas, Tradition, Virtue.
Actually yesterday would have been the normal start day, finishing on the Vigil, but it’s not improper or anything to finish a Novena on the feast day proper. Via MJD, a quick Novena:
Jesus, Who because of Your burning love for us willed to be crucified and to shed Your Most Precious Blood for the redemption and salvation of our souls, look down upon us and grant the petition we ask for …(mention here)
We trust completely in Your Mercy.
Cleanse us from sin by Your Grace,
sanctify our work,
give us and all those who are dear to us our the grace of Thy Eucharistic Presence, lighten the burden of our sufferings,
bless our families,
and grant to the nations, so sorely afflicted,
Your Peace, which is the only true peace, so that by obeying Your Commandments we may come at last to the glory of Heaven.
