  1. This prayer is to be said every morning.
    Holy Cross of Christ ward off from me weapons of danger
    Holy Cross protect me in the right ways of happiness
    Holy Cross of Christ ward off dangerous death and give me life always
    O Jesus of nazereth have mercy on me now and for ever Amen.
    In honour of the Resurrection and God like ascension to watch over me and bring me the right way to heaven.
    True as Jesus Christ was born on a Christmas day in a stable
    True as He was crucified on Good Friday
    True as the threekings brought their Offerings to Jesus on the 14th day
    True as He ascended into heaven
    To the honour of Jesus which keeps us from our enemies visible and invisible now and for ever. Amen
