[This prayer is designed to be said within the family before a Crucifix during the second week of Lent.]
Mother or a child:
From the words of St. Paul [Hebrews 12:14].
Dearly beloved, let us, having such a cloud of witnesses over us, put away every encumbrance and sin entangling us, and run with patience to the fight set before us; looking towards the author and finisher of faith, Jesus, who for the joy set before him, endured a cross, despising shame, and sit at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him... that you may not grow weary and lose heart. For you have not yet resisted unto blood in the struggle with sin.
We ought to glory in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ
in whom is our salvation, life and resurrection.
Let us pray.
Grant us, O God, that through the spiritual renewal of Lent, we may grow in our understanding of the mystery of Christ. This we ask of you through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son.
Favor this dwelling, Lord, with your presence. Far from it repulse all the wiles of Satan. Your holy angels, let them live here, to keep us in peace. And may your blessing remain always upon us. This we ask of you through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son.
Let us bless the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
May the almighty and merciful Lord, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, bless and keep us.
