In Exaltatione Sanctae Crucis

Duplex II classis
Commemoratio: Dominica XVIII Post Pentecosten III. Septembris

Deus, qui nos hodierna die Exaltationis sanctae Crucis annua solemnitate laetificas: praesta, quaesumus; ut cujus mysterium in terra cognovimus, ejus redemptionis praemia in coelo mereamur.
Per eumdem Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum filium Tuum qui vivit et regnat...

Let us pray
O God, Who dost this day gladden us by the yearly Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, grant, we beseech Thee, that even as we have understood the mystery thereof upon earth, so we may worthily enjoy in heaven the fruits of the redemption which was paid thereon.
Through the same Jesus Chrisr your Son our Lord who lives and reigns...
