Saint Catherine of Siena from her childhood vowed to live in chastity. When she entered religion, the devil never failed to torment her with horrible thoughts and representations against the holy virtue of purity; but she never gave the slightest consent to them, never ceasing to pray and to resist temptation. One day, having been subjected to a more violent one than usual, and the enemy having finally withdrawn, Jesus Christ appeared to console her. “Where were You, O my divine Spouse, she said, when I saw myself in such a terrible situation? – I was with you, answered Our Lord. – You were in the midst of the abominations that surrounded my soul? – Those abominations, replied the Savior, did not defile you, because they were abhorrent to you; thus, the struggle that you sustained was a source of merit for you.”
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.
