taking some time off to meditate on the Passion. Death. and Suffering of Our Lord.
praying for all of you.
“i have many distractions, but as soon as i am aware of them, i pray for those people the thought of whom is diverting my attention. in this way, they reap the benefit of my distractions.” ~st. therese of lisieux
saddened by all of the purple.
“our joy depends on the Cross, and our Lord would not enter into His glory save by the way of bitterness. He leads you by the same path as the Saints.” ~st. vincent de paul
longing to hear that alleluia again.

“the Blessed Eucharist is the perfect Sacrament of the Lord’s Passion, since it contains Christ Himself .” ~st. thomas aquinas
wondering where these 40 days went and perhaps being too scrupulous about all of my miserable failures.
“but since all your satisfactions and penances are too small and deficient to atone for so many sins, unite them to those of your Saviour Jesus lifted upon the Cross, receive His Divine Blood as it flows from His wounds, and offer It up to appease Divine Justice.” ~st. peter julian eymard
and wishing you a very blessed Easter in advance.
“remember not former things and look not on things of old. behold I do new things and now they shall spring forth. (43:18)
I am He that blot out thy iniquities. for My own sake I will not remember them. (43:25)
but He was wounded for our iniquities: He was bruised for our sins.
the chastisement of our peace was upon Him.
and by His bruises. we are healed (53:5)” ~isaias.
“prayer ascends and mercy descends. high as are the heavens and low as is the earth, God hears the voice of man.” ~st. augustine.
