Good Friday

I would like to wish you all a very blessed Good Friday. Here are some quotes from the saints I would like to share with you. May God enrich you with His grace and bestow unlimited blessings upon you on this holy day.

This Blood that but one drop of has the power to win all the world forgiveness of its world of sin. - St. Thomas Aquinas

Mount Calvary is the academy of love. - St. Francis de Sales

Make a nosegay of the sufferings of Jesus, and wear it on your bosom, or else keep yourself absorbed in God in pure faith; let your soul be rapt in the thought of His sufferings and His love. Remain in this sacred silence, in this holy admiration, which increases the love of God. - St. Paul of the Cross

Let us firmly trust that, through the infinite merits of Christ's Passion and the dolors of Mary, we shall forever sing the mercies of the Most High. - St. Paul of the Cross

True reverence for the Lord’s passion means fixing the eyes of our heart on Jesus crucified and recognizing in him our own humanity. - Pope Leo the Great, Pope

The fourth is the memory of the glorious pilgrimage of that immaculate lamb, Christ Jesus, and especially his most holy death and passion, keeping always before the eyes of our minds the presence of his most chaste and virginal humanity. This is the best means for winning each battle, and without it, we will not achieve victory over our enemies. Every other weapon will achieve little without this one which surpasses all the rest. - St. Catherine of Bologna

Christians must lean on the Cross of Christ just as travelers lean on a staff when they begin a long journey. They must have the Passion of Christ deeply embedded in their minds and hearts, because only from it can they derive peace, grace, and truth. - St. Anthony of Lisbon

O souls! seek a refuge, like pure doves, in the shadow of the crucifix. There mourn the Passion of your divine Spouse, and drawing from your hearts flames of love and rivers of tears, make of them a precious balm with which to anoint the wounds of your Saviour. - St. Paul of the Cross

The remembrance of the most holy Passion of Jesus Christ is the door through which the soul enters into intimate union with God, interior recollection and most sublime contemplation... - St. Paul of the Cross

The religious who concerns himself intently and devoutly with our Lord's most holy life and passion will find there an abundance of all things useful and necessary for him. He need not seek for anything better than Jesus. - Thomas À Kempis, Imitation of Christ

As to the Passion of our Lord, ...never in anything follow your own will and your own inclination, for that was the cause of His death and passion - St John of the Cross

Our Savior's passion raises men and women from the depths, lifts them up from the earth, and sets them in the heights. - St. Maximus of Turin

The most holy Passion of Jesus Christ is the most efficacious means to convert obstinate sinners. - St Paul of Cross

There is no practice more profitable for the entire sanctification of the soul than the frequent meditation of the sufferings of Jesus Christ. - Saint Alphonsus de Liguori
