Prayer to the Most Holy Cross
(prayer revealed by Our Lady to Maria G. Norcia on April 8, 1990)
OUR LADY SAYS:
Bear in mind the Cross that enlightens the world, the one Light of death and resurrection; there is weeping and joy.
Let’s pray together and say:
O Merciful Jesus, we beg You that the Sacrifice You have suffered for us,
may always remain in our hearts.
May the Sacrifice You have desired with Your crucifixion
be an unforgettable example for us.
Praise be to You, O Lord, infinite Goodness,
for having suffered such an agony for our salvation;
grant us Your forgiveness and an ever greater faith and love for You, and for our brothers and sisters.
May Your name and Your presence live always in us and in the whole world.
Shine Your Light on those who still work in darkness and are seeking Your Love.
Shine Your Light where discord has brought separation from Love;
make Your Light shine upon them.
Grant Your Joy to those who have not yet known It.
We beg You Jesus,
may the day of Your return, the New Kingdom, be full of Your children.
For three times we say:
Lord, grant us Your divine Mercy.
