A Collect of Life through the Cross of Christ

O GOD, our salvation and truth, grant that we thy children, rejecting the proud wisdoms of the world, may betake ourselves to the Cross of thy dear Son, to walk by its way, to repose in its shadow, to venerate its mercy, and to embrace its scorn : through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
