Holy Cross Day

Holy Cross Day

The Collect:

Almighty God, whose Son our Savior Jesus Christ was lifted high upon the cross that he might draw the whole world to himself: Mercifully grant that we, who glory in the mystery of our redemption, may have grace to take up our cross and follow him; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.

And from The Book of Occasional Services, The Way of the Cross, Ninth Station.

We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you: 
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

O God, by the passion of your blessed Son you made an instrument of
shameful death to be for us the means of life: Grant us so to glory in the
cross of Christ, that we may gladly suffer shame and loss for the sake of
your Son our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Holy God, Holy and Mighty, Holy Immortal One, Have mercy upon us.
