St. Francis (d. 1226) once passed by a mason and greeted him in a friendly manner. Then the conversation started and the Saint asked: “Master, what are you doing here? – I work as a mason all day long. – But why? – But to earn money. – And the reason why you want to earn money? – To buy bread. – Why bread? – But to live. – And why do you live?” asked the Saint at last. The mason, who was already bored by this questioning, hesitated and did not know how to answer. St. Francis reminded him of this and instructed him on the true destiny of man.
– Many men do not think about their reason for being on earth. God created us to know Him, to love Him and to serve Him in this world, in order to be happy one day with Him in Heaven for all Eternity.
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.
