Quote/s of the Day – 17 April 2019 – Wednesday of Holy week
“In the passion of our blessed Saviour,
six things chiefly are to be meditated upon.
First, the bitterness of His sorrow,
that we may compassionate with Him.
Secondly, the greatness of our sins,
which were the cause of His torments,
that we may abhor them.
Thirdly, the greatness of the benefit,
that we may be grateful for it.
Fourthly, the excellency of the divine charity
and bounty therein manifested,
that we may love Him more fervently.
Fifthly, the convenience of the mystery,
that we may be drawn to admiration of it.
Lastly, the multiplicity of virtues
of our blessed Saviour which did shine
in this stupendous mystery, that we may
partly imitate and partly admire them.”
St Peter of Alcantara (1499-1562)
“Anyone who turns away from the Cross, turns away from the Resurrection.”
