Exaltation of the Holy Cross, Festival of the Cross, September 14

Intercession on Cross

Intercession adapted from the Liturgy of the Hours

Let us pray with confidence to Christ,
who endured the cross to save us.

O Christ,
you emptied yourself,
taking the form of a servant and being made like us,
Grant that your people may follow the example of your humility.

O Christ,
you humbled yourself,
and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross:
Grant that your servants may imitate your obedience
and will acceptance of trials.

O Christ,
you were raised up by the Father
and given the name that is above all other names:
May your people, strengthened in the hope of a heavenly resurrection
be faithful to the end.

O Christ,
at your name every knee in heaven,
on earth, and under the earth shall bow in adoration:
Pour out your love upon all people
so that every nation on earth might adore you.

O Christ,
every tongue shall confess that you are Lord
to the glory of God the Father:
Welcome our brothers and sisters who have died in the faith
into the unfailing joy of your Kingdom.

God our Father,
in obedience to you
your only Son accepted death on the cross
for the salvation of the world.
We acknowledge the mystery of the cross on earth,
May we receive His gift of redemption in heaven
through the same Jesus Christ our Lord,

AMEN.
