Herolt reports that an unfortunate sinner, among other crimes, had killed his father and one of his brothers, and that as a result he was wandering as a fugitive. Having attended a sermon on Divine Mercy during Lent, he wanted to confess to the preacher himself, who, after hearing the story of his crimes, sent him to pray before an altar of Our Lady of Sorrows, in order to obtain repentance and forgiveness for his sins. The penitent obeyed, but no sooner had he begun to pray than he suddenly fell dead. The next day, as the priest recommended to the people to pray for this poor deceased, a white dove appeared in the church and dropped a bill. The priest, having taken it, read these words: “The soul of the deceased, having just left his body, has gone to paradise. And you, continue to preach the infinite Mercy of God.”
(St. Alphonsus Liguori)
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.
