In one society the existence of the soul was discussed. “You don’t have a soul”, said one of the speakers to his neighbor. – Why do you say that? – Because I don’t see it,” said the other. “Then you don’t have a reason either,” replied his neighbor. “How!” said our man indignantly. “Because I have never seen your reason,” replied the other, smiling.
A schoolmaster asked this question to his children, who gave various answers. One pupil answered: “Because man is more intelligent than the beast”; another: “Because man can speak”; a third: “Because man can read, write and calculate”. Finally a child says: “Because man can know God and love Him”.
Man’s greatest privilege is to possess a soul that resembles the Godhead and through which he can know and love God.
Sign of the Cross
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, and of the Mother of God. Amen.
O Jesus! We are going to walk with You on the road to Calvary which was so painful for You. Make us understand the greatness of Your sufferings, touch our hearts with tender compassion at the sight of Your torments, in order to increase in us the regret of our faults and the love we wish to have for You.
Deign to apply to all of us the infinite merits of Your Passion, and in memory of Your sorrows, show mercy to the souls in Purgatory, especially to those who are most abandoned.
O Divine Mary, who first taught us to make the Way of the Cross, obtain for us the grace to follow Jesus with the sentiments Your Heart was filled with as You accompanied Him on the road to Calvary. Grant that we may weep with You, and that we may love Your divine Son as You do. We ask this in the name of His adorable Heart. Amen.
My Jesus, forgiveness and mercy!
By the merits of Thy holy Wounds and the sorrows of Thy Mother.
