Quote of the day, 7 March: St. Mary of Jesus Crucified

Lord, nothing here below can comfort me, neither creation, nor Heaven, nor earth, nor men, nor angels, nothing can give me the joy, the peace that I have lost in losing you, my God.

Have mercy on your servant, I hope in your mercy, Lord, I cannot live without you, my life is stained with crimes, I have sinned against heaven and against you, forgive me, save me.

See my weakness, if you leave me, I fall, I sin at every moment.

Saint Mary of Jesus Crucified
