Glorious Cross March 4
We venerate your cross, we praise your resurrection (Veneration of the Cross, Good Friday).
Praise be to you, O Christ,
for the victory of your Glorious Cross!
Through the Power of your Death and Resurrection,
be our Champion over the evil which afflicts us:
the sickness of our bodies,
the errors of our minds,
the confusion of our feelings,
the guilt of our consciences,
the brokenness of our relationships,
and the weakness of our faith.
Make good our hope in you
and restore us now and forever to your Glory,
O Crucified and Risen Lord. Amen.
Strong roots sustain the trees and their leaves. (Zimba)
