On the Cross:
Do not be astonished, brothers and sisters, that the world hates you. We know that we have passed from death to life because we love one another. Whoever does not love abides in death. All who hate a brother or sister are murderers, and you know that murderers do not have eternal life abiding in them. We know love by this, that he laid down his life for us—and we ought to lay down our lives for one another. -- 1 John 3:13-16
Invitatory Bead:
Almighty God, by whose grace and power your holy martyr Alban triumphed over suffering and was faithful even unto death: Grant to us, who now remember him with thanksgiving, to be so faithful in our witness to you in this world, that we may receive with him the crown of life; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Cruciform Bead:
O taste and see that the LORD is good; happy are those who take refuge in him. -- Psalm 34:8
Week Beads:
Psalm 34:1-7
1st: I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2nd: My soul makes its boast in the LORD; let the humble hear and be glad.
3rd: O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.
4th: I sought the LORD, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears.
5th: Look to him, and be radiant; so your faces shall never be ashamed.
6th: This poor soul cried, and was heard by the LORD, and was saved from every trouble.
7th: The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them.
Exit Cross:
‘Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and one’s foes will be members of one’s own household. Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and whoever does not take up the cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it. ‘Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward; and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous; and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple--truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward.’ -- Matthew 10:34-42
