Exaltation Day 5 - Catholic Action For Faith and Family

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

O cherished cross! Through thee my most bitter trials are replete with graces! 

        Saint John of the Cross, Doctor of the Church


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 Third Sorrow of the Blessed Virgin Mary: 

Jesus is Lost in the Temple

Pray 1 Our Father

And when He was twelve they went up for the celebration as was their custom. 

Pray 1 Hail Mary

As they were returning at the end of the feast, the Child Jesus remained behind unknown to His parents.

Pray 1 Hail Mary

Not finding Him, they returned to Jerusalem in search of Him.

Pray 1 Hail Mary

“Son, why have you done so to us? You see that Your father and I have been searching for You in sorrow.”

Pray 1 Hail Mary

“Did you not know that I had to be in My Father’s house?”

Pray 1 Hail Mary

But they did not grasp what He had said to them.

Pray 1 Hail Mary

He went down with them then, and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them. His mother meanwhile, kept all these things in memory. 

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.)
