God, Our Father, who wants all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. And for that you sent your beloved son, so that by extending his arms on the cross he would show his love for us to the end. We ask you to bless these crosses; that they may remind us of the wonders you performed in your holy people through the new covenant, and that they become a sign of your presence in the midst of our daily work. Grant us the will to carry with your son our cross each day so that we may also enjoy together with him eternal happiness in heaven. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
