may the contemplation of Your sufferings
move me with the greatest compassion,
make me hate my sins,
and kindle in my heart a more fervent love for You…
My beloved Jesus,
grant that I may never cease to love You,
and do with me as you will.
I place myself at the foot of the Cross,
help me to understand how necessary it is to suffer
in order to resemble You.
(from Divine Intimacy)
