Novena in Exaltation of the Holy Cross

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless Thee,
for by Thy Holy Cross Thou hast redeemed the world.

( here our prayer intention)

O God, Who for the redemption of the world, wast pleased to be born in a stable and to die upon a cross;
O Lord Jesus Christ, by Thy holy sufferings, which we, Thy unworthy servants, call to mind:
by Thy Holy Cross, and by Thy death, deliver us from the pains of Hell,
and vouchsafe to conduct us whither Thou didst conduct the good thief who was crucified with Thee,
Who livest and reignest eternally in Heaven. Amen.

Sweet the wood, sweet the nails,
sweet the Burden which Thou bearest,
for Thou alone, O Holy Cross,
wast worthy to bear the King and Lord of Heaven.Amen

Let us always remember the Poor Souls

Eternal Father, I offer You the most precious blood of thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, for those in my own home and in my family. Amen

Prayer for the Conversion of Scandinavia

300 Days, once a day. (See Instructions.) 54 Leo XIII, April 18, 1885.

O good Jesus , prostrate at Thy feet, we humbly implore Thee, by thy most Sacred Wounds and by the Precious Blood which Thou didst shed for the salvation of the whole world, that Thou wouldst deign to cast a look of pity on the peoples of Scandinavia, seduced from the Faith for so many centuries, and plunged in the darkness of heresy, separated from thy Church, deprived of the participation of the adorable Sacrament of thy Body and Blood, and of the other sacraments instituted by Thee, as the refuge of souls in life and in death.

Remember, O Redeemer of the world, that for these souls too Thou didst suffer bitter death, with the loss of all thy blood. Bring back, O good Shepherd, these wandering sheep ofthine to the one fold and to the healthy pastures of thy Church, so that they may form with us one flock , tended by Thee, and by thy Vicar on earth, the supreme Pontiff, whom, in the person of the Apostle St Peter, Thou didst commission to feed thy sheep and thy lambs. Graciously hear, O good Jesus, the prayers which we offer Thee with the most lively trust in the love of thy Sacred Heart, and to thy most Holy Name be praise, glory, and honor, world without end. Amen.
