Cross and Crown: The Patience of the Cross

HOLY FATHER, who hast shewn us that the brave bearing of the Cross is the earnest of wearing thy Crown : Help us by thy grace to bear patiently our pains and disappointments, as thy beloved Son bore his ; and to offer them as a faithful and pure gift to our crucified Lord ; who now reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, GOD, for ever and ever.
