Holy Cross Day

Sentence Jesus said, ‘And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.’ (John 12:32)
(or)
May I never boast of anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. (Galatians 6:14)
   
Collect Almighty God, who in the passion of your blessed Son made an instrument of painful death to be for us the means of life and peace: Grant us so to glory in the cross of Christ that we may gladly suffer for his sake; who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
(or)
Almighty God, whose Son our Saviour Jesus Christ was lifted high upon the cross that he might draw the whole world to himself: Mercifully grant that we, who glory in the mystery of our redemption, may have grace to take up our cross and follow him; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
