This prayer is designed to be said within the family before a Crucifix during the fourth week of Lent.]
Mother or a child:
From the words of St. Paul [Hebrews 9:13-14].
Dearly beloved, if the blood of goats and bulls and the sprinkled ashes of a heifer sanctify unto the cleansing of the flesh (according to Old Testament religion), how much more will the Blood of Christ, who through the Holy Spirit offered Himself unblemished unto God, cleanse Your conscience from dead works to serve the living God!
Father:
We ought to glory in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Family:
in whom is our salvation, life and resurrection.
Father:
Let us pray.
We want to serve You, Lord. By Your grace may our good desires bear their fruits; for the penances we have undertaken will be useful only if they please Your loving heart. This we ask of You through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son.
Family:
Amen.
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.
Father:
Let us bless the Lord.
Family:
Thanks be to God.
Father:
May the almighty and merciful Lord, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, bless and keep us.
Family:
Amen.
