Blessing Prayer of the St. Benedict’s Crucifix
V. Our help is in the name of the Lord.
R. Who made heaven and earth.
In the Name of God, the Father + Almighty, Who made heaven and earth, the seas and all that is in them, I exorcise this crucifix against the power and attacks of the evil one. May all who use this crucifix devoutly be blessed with health of soul and body. In the Name of the Father + Almighty, of the Son + Jesus Christ, our Lord and of the Holy + Spirit, the Paraclete and in the love of the same Lord Jesus Christ Who will come on the last day to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire. Amen.
Let us pray. Almighty God, the boundless source of all good things, we humbly ask that, through the intercession of St. Benedict, You pour out Your blessings + upon this crucifix. May those who use them devoutly and earnestly strive to perform good works be blessed by You with health of soul and body, the grace of a holy life and remission of the temporal punishment due to sin. May they also with the help of Your merciful love, resist the temptation of the evil one and strive to exercise true charity and justice toward all, so that one day they may appear sinless and holy in Your sight. This we ask through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
The crucifix is then sprinkled with holy water.
