Exaltation of Sorrows Day 4 - Catholic Action For Faith and Family

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

Salvation is in the Cross.

    Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos, C.Ss.R.


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 Second Sorrow of the Blessed Virgin Mary: 

Joseph, Mary and the Child Jesus Flee into Egypt

Pray 1 Our Father

After they had left, an angel of the Lord suddenly appeared in a dream to Joseph, with this command: “Get up, take the Child and His mother and flee to Egypt.”

Pray 1 Hail Mary

“Stay there until I tell you otherwise. Herod is searching for the Child to destroy Him.”

Pray 1 Hail Mary

Joseph got up and took the Child and His Mother and left that night for Egypt.

Pray 1 Hail Mary

He stayed there until the death of Herod, to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet.

Pray 1 Hail Mary

“Out of Egypt I have called My Son”

Pray 1 Hail Mary

But after Herod’s death, the angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt with the command, “Get up, take the Child and His mother, and set out for the land of Israel.”

Pray 1 Hail Mary

He heard, however, that Archelaus had succeeded his father Herod as king of Judea, and he was afraid to go back there.  Instead, because of the warning received in a dream, Joseph went to the region of Galilee. 

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.)
