Come on everyone! Keep up the fasting and the prayers. Let us renew our fast with vigor this week if we have succumbed to sloth and indolence! Our nation needs our vigil!
Remember the Life-Giving Cross, and in it, we carry before ourselves the symbol of victory.
Prayer to the Venerable Cross
Let God arise and let His enemies be scattered, and let them that hate Him flee from before His face. As smoke vanishes, so let them vanish; and as wax melts before the fire, so let the demons perish before the presence of them that love God and who sign themselves with the Sign of the Cross and say in gladness: Rejoice, most precious and life-giving Cross of the Lord, for You drive away the demons by the power of our Lord Jesus Christ Who was crucified on You, and Who went down to hades and trampled on the power of the devil, and gave us You, His venerable Cross, for the driving away of every adversary. O most precious and life-giving Cross of the Lord, help me together with Our All-Holy Lady, the Virgin Theotokos, and with all the saints, throughout the ages. Amen.
God Please grant us the extra grace necessary to fast for an end to the HHS mandate. Please remember that we are week and surrounded by a secular world of gluttony and temptation. Dear sweet Jesus be our strength, be our self control, be our discipline. We are nothing without you and we can do nothing without you Most Divine Savior and Redeemer of the world. AMEN.
