The Holy Family in Prayer

Little John’s kiss

On returning from a stroll, little John, having entered a convent with his mother, saw a nun cutting up hosts, which had been made that very morning with very white flour. The child, having heard that these hosts were to be used at the next day’s Mass, suddenly became quite serious. Then his face lit up with an angelic smile, and, approaching the table where the large and small hosts were, he kissed a large one with infinite respect. “But, my little John, said the nun,the good Jesus is not in there! – I know that, said the child in a gentle voice, but He will be there tomorrow morning at Mass, and I want Him to find there the kiss of little John. – Why, added the mother, did you choose a large host rather than a small one?” And the child replied, “It was to make a bigger kiss.”

John of B. was then only four years old. Today he sees the little Jesus in Heaven. For death took him from his mother at the end of his eighth year.

Preparatory Prayer

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.
