The Greek philosopher Diogenes set up a tent in the market place of Athens, where he put up the following sign: “Wisdom is sold here.” An aristocrat who was passing by and who had been laughed at by this poster, called one of his slaves, gave him three sesterces (about 60 cents), and said to him: “Go to this boaster, and ask him how much wisdom he sells for three sesterces.” The slave carried out his master’s order and Diogenes, pocketing the three coins, said to him, “Go back to your master and bring him this maxim: In all things, think of the end.” This maxim pleased the master so well that he had it engraved above his door, to remind all who entered his house.
– No one has reminded men of their last end more often or more insistently than Jesus Christ. Let every one of His disciples, therefore, think of it continually.
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.
