Exaltation Of The Holy Cross (Triumph of the Cross)

Prayer Before A Crucifix

Look down upon me, good and gentle Jesus, while before Thy face I humbly kneel, and with burning soul I pray and beseech Thee to fix deep in my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope and charity, true contrition for my sins, and a firm purpose of amendment; while I contemplate with great love and tender pity Thy five wounds, pondering over them within me, having in mind the words which David Thy prophet said of Thee, my Jesus: "They have pierced my hands and my feet; they have numbered all my bones."
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be for the Holy Father's intentions

I am in the process of trying to make a "poke cake"! Not sure how it will turn out, as I have 2 conflicting recipes, one says to wait until the cake is completely cooled, the other says to pour the liquid jello on the warm cake...I think I might make it right in the middle, not cool or warm. Lukewarm, that's it! The plan is to make a white cake in a cross shape cake pan, (it's in the oven) and then poke holes in it and pour cherry jello over it, which will poke through it. (symbolizing the blood of Jesus) pudding frosting on top! Hopefully I will have pictures for you tomorrow, on this wonderful feast day!


  1. I am looking forward to seeing the pictures of your cake. It sounds great!

  2. Oh wow, what a wonderful way to celebrate today. Where did you find that recipe, if I might ask? I'd love to do something like that. Can't wait to see the pics. :-)

  3. my MIL makes that cake when we visit her in IA. Must be a Mid-Westerner "thang". :-) YUM!! I'd take stawberry over cherry, though.


Thank you so much for stopping and commenting!
