Exaltation Day 7 - Catholic Action For Faith and Family

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

Do everything calmly and peacefully. Do as much as you can as well as you can. Strive to see God in all things without exception, and consent to His will joyously. Do everything for God, uniting yourself to him in word and deed. Walk very simply with the Cross of the Lord and be at peace with yourself.

    St Francis de Sales

EXALTATION OF THE HOLY CROSS NINE DAY NOVENA PRAYER

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 and especially ask for the restoration of good health to 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.

HONORING THE SORROWS OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY

The Fifth Sorrow of the Blessed Virgin Mary: 

Mary Stands at the Foot of the Cross 

Pray 1 Our Father

They gave Him a drink of wine flavored with gall, which He tasted but refused to drink.

Pray 1 Hail Mary

When they had crucified Him, they divided His clothes among them by casting lots.

Pray 1 Hail Mary

Above His head they had put the charge against Him in writing: “THIS IS JESUS, KING OF THE JEWS.”

Pray 1 Hail Mary

People going by kept insulting Him, tossing their heads and saying, “So You are the One Who was going to destory the Temple and rebuild it in three days! Save Yourself, why don’t You.”

Pray 1 Hail Mary

The chief priests, the scribes, and the elders also joined in the jeering, “He saved others but He cannot save Himself.”

Pray 1 Hail Mary

The insurgents who had been crucified with Him kept taunting Him in the same way. 

Pray 1 Hail Mary

Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, they do not know what they are doing.”

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 for the restoration of good health to Cardinal Burke)
