Thought for the Day – 25 September – The Crucifix

Thought for the Day – 25 September – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

The Crucifix

The Crucifix is the open book in which men can read of God’s infinite love for them.
The Saints wept before the Crucifix because they realised that the sufferings and death of the Redeemer were the result of sin and so, they learned to avoid sin at all costs.
They meditated on the last words of Jesus dying on the Cross, words which so clearly illustrate His infinite mercy towards us.

We should follow the example of the Saints in this devotion.
Let the Crucifix be the most precious object in our homes and let us love to hold it in our hands.
Let it recall for us, the tragedy of Mount Calvary, when Jesus was stripped of His garments and nailed to the Cross, was raised up to suffer indescribable agonies, forgave His executioners and forgave us our sins, pardoned the penitent thief and bequeathed to us the last treasured possession which was left to Him, His most holy Mother.

Let us weep for sins and increase in love for our divine Redeemer.”

Antonio Cardinal Bacci

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
