Light the red candle this week. Offer this prayer for Holy Week:

Mother or child: (From the words of Pope Pius XII On the Sacred Liturgy,)
Dearly beloved, in Holy Week, when the most bitter sufferings of
Jesus Christ are put before us by the liturgy, the Church invites us to come to Calvary and follow in the blood-stained footsteps of the Divine Redeemer, to carry the Cross willingly with Him, to reproduce in our hearts His spirit of expiation and atonement, and to die together with Him.
Father: We ought to
glory in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ
Family: in whom is our salvation,
life and resurrection.
Father: Let us pray. All-powerful, eternal God, you have chosen to give mankind a model of humility; our Saviour took on our flesh, and subjected Himself to the Cross. Grant us the
grace to preserve faithfully in the lessons He has given us in his Passion and to have a share in His resurrection. This we ask of You through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son.
Family: Amen. Favour this dwelling, Lord, with Your presence. Far from it repulse all the wiles of Satan. Your holy angels, let them live here, to keep us in peace. And may Your
blessing remain always upon us. This we ask of You through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son.
Father: Let us bless the
Lord
Family: Thanks be to God.
Father: May the almighty and merciful Lord, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, bless and keep us.
Family: Amen.
