A Prayer for Holy Week

From  Eric Swensson’s blog:

Invitatory: “he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he poured out himself to death, and… he bore the sin of many,” Is 53.12

O God, holy and eternal, you permit us to enter into the fellowship of that holy suffering by which your dear Son, our Savior, conquered sin, death and the power of the devil. Grant that we may celebrate his passion with true devotion, accept the cross as his disciples, and thus fulfill your holy will; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. [K.B. Ritter, Gebete fur das Jahr der Kirche, 2nd edition (Kassel: Johannes Stauda-Verlag, 1948), p. 249.]
