Greetings in Jesus and Mary....
Today is the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross. How we need to try to grow closer to the understanding of the mystery of the cross. To be a Christian means to embrace our cross as Jesus did for the glory of God and the salvation of souls. Suffering is a mystery that we must not waste. We can unite our sufferings to the Cross of Jesus Christ in order to offer reparation for the sins of the world.
Below is a link with some info on the Purple Scapular. I encourage all to obtain one today and to learn the prayers associated with it as well as the story behind it. We need all the protection that we can get today as long as we have faith in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary Who gave us this gift for these times.
The Purple Scapular Prayer
I hail thee, Jesus crucified,
for granting me life.
I hail thee with all the joy
of the angels and saints during
your descent from the Cross.
I hail thee with the sadness
of your mother while you rested
on her Immaculate heart and lap.
Repeat 5 times:
O Crux Ave, spes unica,
et Verbum caro factum est.
O Jesus, conqueror of death, save us!
