Often we ask Christ to allow us to share in his sufferings. But when someone is indifferent to us, we forget that then is precisely the moment to share Christ’s attitude.
-St. Teresa of Kolkata
He then gave me to understand that it was not enough to carry the cross, but that I must fasten myself to it with Him, in order to keep Him faithful company by sharing in the sufferings, contempt, opprobrium and other indignities of which He was the victim.
-St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
Lord, Send Your Abundant Blessing
Lord, send your abundant blessing upon your people who devoutly recall the death of your Son in the sure hope of the Resurrection. Grant us pardon; bring us comfort. May our faith grow stronger and our eternal salvation be assured.
