How radiant is that precious cross which brought us our salvation. In the cross we are victorius, through the cross we shall reign, by the cross all evil is destroyed, alleluia.
God our Father, in obedience to you your only Son accepted death on the cross for the salvation of mankind. We acknowledge the mystery of the cross on earth. May we receive the gift of redemption in heaven. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
