Thoughts on the Patient Endurance of Sorrows and Sufferings
Let us keep the crucifix habitually before our eyes, let us often and lovingly kiss it. While gazing upon the image of Jesus crucified, let us be mindful of the words of the Apostle: "He loved me and delivered Himself for me" (Gal. ii. 20); let us give expression to our love for Our Saviour, by exclaiming with St. Francis of Assisi: "My God and my all!"
Let us also say with a contrite and humble heart: "My Jesus, mercy!" Or "Sweetest Jesus, be to me not a judge, but a Saviour!"
