RAISE thy eyes, and behold that crucified Man-God. Behold the divine Lamb sacrificed on that altar of pain. See how his arms are stretched out to embrace thee; his head bowed down to give thee the kiss of peace; his side open to receive thee. What dost thou say? Does not a God so loving deserve to be loved?
