Saint Hubert, the son of a duke of Aquitaine (who died in 727 as bishop of Maëstricht), had been a passionate hunter in his youth. He spent almost all his time hunting and forgot God completely. One day, on a great feast day, he went hunting in the Ardennes instead of going to church, and suddenly he saw before him a deer with a luminous image of the Crucified on its forehead. At the same time a voice cried out to him: “Hubert, how long will you continue to chase game and use your time so badly? When will you finally be convinced that you were created only to know and love God?” These words and the mysterious apparition made a deep impression on Hubert; he immediately resolved to change his life, went to St. Lambert, bishop of Maëstricht, to ask him for help and advice in order to enter the ways of a truly Christian life. Hubert later became a priest, and his virtues led to his election as successor to St. Lambert.

– Let each one of us ask himself every day why he is in this world.
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.
