I had to pray Sext a little early today, as I was on a bus at 12.00 pm. But I still thought about our group today. Glad to be participating with you all.
Almighty God, whose Son our Savior Jesus Christ was lifted high upon the cross that he might draw the whole world unto 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 liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
Collect for the Day of the Holy Cross, Book of Common Prayer, 1979.
