It is said that a holy soul, ablaze with the love of God and the desire for His glory, often cried out:
“Ah, my God, my God, how I would like to have as many hearts and as many tongues, as there are leaves on the trees, atoms in the air, drops of water in the great seas, to love and praise You as much as You deserve! Oh, that I had in my power all the creatures to lay them at Your feet, so that all of them would be consumed with love for You, provided that I myself love You more than all of them together, more even than the angels, more than the saints, more than the whole of Paradise!” One day when she was giving herself up to these holy transports with the greatest ardor, she heard the Lord answer her, “Be comforted, My daughter; by a single mass which you will hear with devotion, you will give Me all the glory you desire, and infinitely more.” Perhaps you are surprised at this proposal? You are wrong. Indeed, our divine Savior being not only man, but true and almighty God, when He deigns to lower Himself on the altar, He renders to the adorable Trinity, by this divine abasement, a never-ending glory, an infinite honor; and consequently, we who concur with Him in the august sacrifice, we also contribute to render to God, through His mediation, tributes and a glory of infinite price.
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.
