Novena (Day 3): Exaltation of the Holy Cross

Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross - September 14th
Novena (Day 3 of 9)

Jesus, Who because of Your burning love for us, willed to be crucified and to shed Your Most Precious Blood for the redemption and salvation of our souls, look down upon us and grant the petition we ask for: (mention your request).

We trust completely in Your Mercy.  Cleanse us from sin by Your Grace, sanctify our work, give us and all those who are dear to us our daily bread, lighten the burden of our sufferings, bless our families, and grant to the nations, so sorely afflicted, Your Peace, which is the only true peace, so that by obeying Your Commandments we may all come at last to the glory of Heaven.

(Pray an Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be.)
