Litany in Honor of the Holy Cross

L\ The word of the Cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. (1 Cor. 1:18)
R\ God forbid that I should glory save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. (Gal. 6:14)

L\ Jesus has many who love His Kingdom in heaven, but few who bear His Cross. He has many who desire comfort, but few who desire suffering. He finds many to share His feast, but few His fasting. All desire to rejoice with Him, but few are willing to suffer for His sake.*
R\ God forbid that I should glory save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. (Gal. 6:14)

L\ Why do you fear to take up the Cross, which is the road to the Kingdom? In the Cross is salvation and life, protection against our enemies, infusion of heavenly sweetness; in the Cross is strength of mind, joy of spirit, excellence of virtue, perfection of holiness. There is no salvation of soul, nor hope of eternal life, save in the Cross.*
R\ God forbid that I should glory save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. (Gal. 6:14)

L\ Take up the Cross, therefore, and follow Jesus, and go forward into eternal life. Christ has gone before you, bearing His Cross; He died for you on the Cross, that you also may bear your cross, and desire to die on the Cross with Him. For if you die with Him, you will also live with Him. And if you share his sufferings, you will also share His glory.*
R\ God forbid that I should glory save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. (Gal. 6:14)

L\ See how in the Cross all things consist, and in dying on it all things depend. There is no other way to life and to true inner peace, than the way of the Cross. Go where you will, seek what you will; you will find no higher way above nor safer way below than the road of the Holy Cross.*
R\ God forbid that I should glory save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. (Gal. 6:14)

L\ The Cross always stands ready, and everywhere awaits you. You cannot escape it, wherever you flee; for wherever you go, you bear yourself, and always find yourself. Look up or down, without you or within, and everywhere you will find the Cross. And everywhere you must have patience, if you wish to attain inner peace, and win an eternal crown.*
R\ God forbid that I should glory save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. (Gal. 6:14)

All: Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen us to follow you not only to the Breaking of Bread but also to the drinking of the Cup of Your Passion. Help us to love You for Your own sake and not for the sake of comfort for ourselves. Make us worthy to suffer for Your name, Jesus, our Crucified and Risen Lord and Savior, now and forever.
Amen.

Absolve, O Lord, the souls of the faithful departed from every bond of sin, And by the help of Thy grace may they be enabled to escape the avenging judgment, and to enjoy the happiness of eternal life.

Because in Thy mercy are deposited the souls that departed in an inferior degree of grace, Lord have mercy.
Because their present suffering is greatest in the knowledge of the pain that their separation from Thee is causing Thee, Lord have mercy.
Because of their present inability to add to Thy accidental glory, Lord have mercy.
Not for our consolation, O Lord; not for their release from purgative pain, O God; but for Thy joy and the greater accidental honor of Thy throne, O Christ the King, Lord have mercy.

For the souls of our departed friends, relations and benefactors, Grant light and peace, O Lord.
For those of our family who have fallen asleep in Thy bosom, O Jesus, Grant light and peace, O Lord.
For those who have gone to prepare our place, Grant light and peace, O Lord.

For those who, while on earth, were most devoted to God the Holy Ghost, to Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament, to the holy Mother of God, Grant light and peace, O Lord.
For all deceased popes and prelates, Grant light and peace, O Lord.
For all deceased priests, seminarians and religious, Grant light and peace, O Lord.
For all our brethren in the Faith everywhere, Grant light and peace, O Lord.
For all our separated brethren who deeply loved Thee, and would have come into Thy household had they known the truth, Grant light and peace, O Lord.
For those souls who need, or in life asked, our prayers, Grant light and peace, O Lord.
For those, closer to Thee than we are, whose prayers we need, Grant light and peace, O Lord.

That those may be happy with Thee forever, who on earth were true exemplars of the Catholic Faith, Grant them eternal rest, O Lord.
That those may be admitted to Thine unveiled Presence, who as far as we know never committed mortal sin, Grant them eternal rest, O Lord.
That those may be housed in glory, who lived always in recollection and prayer, Grant them eternal rest, O Lord.
That those may be given the celestial joy of beholding Thee, who lived lives of mortification, self-denial, and penance, Grant them eternal rest, O Lord.
That those may be flooded with Thy love, who denied themselves even Thy favors of indulgence and who made the heoric act for the souls who had gone before them, Grant them eternal rest, O Lord.
That those may be drawn up to the Beatific Vision, who never put obstacles in the way of sanctifying grace and who ever drew closer in mystical union with Thee, Grant them eternal rest O Lord.

Eternal rest give unto them, O Lord, And let perpetual light shine upon them.

LET US PRAY : Be mindful, O Lord, of all Thy servants and handmaids who are gone before us with the sign of faith and repose in the sleep of grace. To these, O Lord, and to all who rest in Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, a place of refreshment, light and peace, through the same Christ Our Lord.
Amen.

Litany of Loreto

This litany to the Blessed Virgin Mary was composed during the Middle Ages. The place of honor it now holds in the life of the Church is due to its faithful use at the shrine of the Holy House at Loreto. It was definitely approved by Sixtus V in 1587, and all other Marian litanies were suppressed, at least for public use. Its titles and invocations set before us Mary's exalted privileges, her holiness of life, her amiability and power, her motherly spirit and queenly majesty. The principle that has been followed in their interpretation is the one enunciated by the same Pius IX: "God enriched her so wonderfully from the treasury of His divinity, far beyond all angels and saints with the abundance of all heavenly gifts, that she . . .should show forth such fullness of innocence and holiness, than which a greater under God is unthinkable and which, beside God, no one can even conceive in thought." Hence, whatever virtue and holiness is found in angels and saints must be present in Mary in an immeasurably higher degree.
Reflection on the titles of the litany will unfold before us the grand picture of our heavenly Mother, even though we know only little about her life. We will also come to see why Mary's example, guidance, and help is the need of the hour.
