must be to form Jesus in ourselves,
to make His spirit, His devotion, His affections,
His desires and His disposition live and reign there.
All our religious exercises should be directed to this end.
It is the work which God has given us to do unceasingly. “

and completion of the life of Christ in us.

continuing His life and His works,
labouring and suffering in a holy
and divine manner in the spirit of Jesus.”

“The air that we breathe,
the bread that we eat,
the heart which throbs in our bosoms,
are not more necessary for man

than is prayer for the Christian
that he may live as a Christian.”

““If the Church shows respect and veneration for everything
that came in contact with the Saviour’s Body: the Cross,
the Nails, the Thorns, the Winding Sheet of His Sepuchre,
the Swathing-bands of His infancy and similar things – what
honour must be due to this venerable body of the
Blessed Virgin from which the Body of the Redeemer was formed!”
