Tuesday in Holy Week Morning Prayer

O God, by the passion of your blessed Son you made an instrument of shameful death to be for us the means of life: Grant us so to glory in the cross of Christ, that we may gladly suffer shame and loss for the sake of your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

(BCP 220)

That's such a well-chosen illustration for the prayer and for this week - a cross and a life-belt - both symbols of salvation.
Yes, I love this photo - I took it at a beach in County Donegal and love the symbolism.
