Saint John of God’s indifference to contempt knew how to take on the noblest character when necessary. One day, while walking through the Albaïzin, that is to say the district inhabited by the Moors, he was the object of many abuses and insults. He was enduring them without saying a word, when one of the most insolent of this rabble, approaching him, challenged him thus: “Tell us then, Christian, what miracles did Jesus Christ perform?” The Saint answered him with a firmness full of modesty, “It is no small miracle that, amidst the outrages with which you heap upon me, He gives me the strength to suffer you, and that out of love for His law I do nothing here unworthy of the Christian name.”
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.
