Quote of the day: 26 March

In speaking of Jesus Christ, one saint wrote: “Where, then, did He dwell but in suffering?” and David sang that this suffering was as immense as the sea. Every soul crushed by suffering, in whatever form it may occur, can tell itself: I dwell with Jesus Christ, we are living in intimacy, the same dwelling shelters us!

  1. Thank you!! I am in isolation for a week as a bit chesty, so needed to hear I am with Jesus. I keep thinking of His sweating blood. He, too, was afraid, it says so in the Office.
