Let us look at a picture with attractive colors. Father de Smet, the apostle of the savage peoples of North America, will present it to us.
There was, he says, in one of the tribes I evangelize, a little girl of twelve years of age, who was ill and who, feeling that she was dying, asked for baptism. They hastened to comply with her wishes; and when she had been baptized, the young child began to recite her prayers; then she was singing a hymn, when suddenly, stopping, she cried out, “Oh, how beautiful! I hear the voice of Mary my Mother calling me.” Saying these words she expires, and her pure soul flies away to follow the Queen of Heaven.
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.
