Exaltation Day 3 - Catholic Action For Faith and Family

Day Three - The Exaltation of the Holy Cross – The 7 Sorrows of Our Lady 

One cannot desire freedom from the Cross when one is especially chosen for the Cross.

    St. Edith Stein 


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(s) we ask for 

(Mention your petitions now. Ask Jesus to bestow abundant graces upon Cardinal Burke.)

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 daily bread, 
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. AMEN.


The First Sorrow of the Blessed Virgin Mary: 

Simeon Prophesies That A Sword of Sorrow Will Pierce Mary’s Soul.

Pray 1 Our Father

There lived in Jerusalem, at that time, a certain man named Simeon. He was just and pious, and awaited the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him.

Pray 1 Hail Mary

Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, His Mother, “This Child is destined to be the downfall and the rise of many in Israel, a sign that will be opposed.”

Pray 1 Hail Mary

“And you yourself shall be pierced with a sword-so that the thoughts of many hearts may be laid bare”

Pray 1 Hail Mary

“Yet He shall be a snare, an obstacle and a stumbling stone to both the Houses of Israel, a trap and a snare to those who dwell in Jersusalem.”

Pray 1 Hail Mary

“Behold, I am placing in Zion a stone to make men stumble and a rock to make them fall; but he who believes in Him will not be put to shame.”

Pray 1 Hail Mary

“A stone which the builders rejected that became a cornerstone.”

Pray 1 Hail Mary

When the parents had fulfilled all the prescriptions of the Law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee and their own town of Nazareth. 

Pray 1 Hail Mary

Mary, full of Mercy, remind our hearts of the suffering of Jesus during His Passion.

O MARY, sorrowful Virgin and Mother of all Christians, pray for us and hear my intentions which I now present to you. (Mention your intentions now and especially ask the Blessed Virgin Mary to bestow many graces upon Cardinal Burke.)
