The Holy Season of Lent


The Cross is my sure salvation. The Cross I ever adore. The Cross of my Lord is with me. The Cross is my refuge. 

Come, let us adore. 

Between the porch and the altar, the priests, the Lord's ministers, shall "weep, and shall say: Spare, O Lord, spare Thy people; and shut not the mouths of them that sing to thee, O Lord." 

Come, let us adore. 

Let us change our garments for ashes and sack-cloth: let us fast and lament before the Lord: for God is plenteous in mercy to forgive our sins. 

Come, let us adore. 

Attend, O Lord, and have mercy, for we have sinned against Thee. Help us, O God, our Savior and for the honor of Thy Name, O Lord, deliver us.

Come, let us adore. 

Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me: for my soul trusteth in Thee. He hath sent from heaven, and delivered me; He hath made them a reproach that trod upon me.

Come, let us adore. 

Help us, O God our Saviour; and for the glory of Thy Name, O Lord, deliver us: and forgive us our sins for Thy Name's sake.

Come, let us adore. 

O Sacrament most holy, O Sacrament divine, All praise and all thanksgiving be every moment Thine! (3 times)

Then say ten times

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be. 

V. Let us every moment praise the Most Holy Sacrament.
R. May our God, present in the Sacrament, be now and ever praised.

Prayer:

Eternal Father, I unite myself with the intentions and affections of our Lady of Sorrows on Calvary, and I offer Thee the sacrifice which Thy beloved Son Jesus made of Himself on the Cross, and now renews on the altar: First, to adore Thee and give Thee the honor which is due to Thee, confessing Thy supreme dominion over all things, and the absolute dependence of everything upon Thee, Thou Who art our one and last end. Second, to thank Thee for innumerable benefits received. Third, to appease Thy justice, irritated against us by so many sins, and to make satisfaction for them. Fourth, to implore grace and mercy for myself, for . . . , for all afflicted and sorrowing, for poor sinners, for all the world, and for the holy souls in Purgatory.

As I kneel before Thee on the Cross, most loving Saviour of my soul, my conscience tells me it was I who nailed Thee to the Cross with these hands of mine, as often as I have fallen into mortal sin, wearying Thee with my monstrous ingratitude. My God, my chief and most perfect Good, worthy of all my love, seeing Thou hast ever loaded me with blessings, I cannot now undo my misdeeds, as I would most willingly, but I can and will loathe them, grieving greatly for having offended Thee Who art infinite Goodness. Amen.
