Holy Cross

Lord, protect us in our struggle against evil.

As we begin the discipline of Lent, make this season holy by our self-denial.

May the light of Your truth bestow sight to the darkness of our sinful eyes and our repentance bring us the blessing of Your forgiveness and the gift of new life.

Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
