On this holy day I pray you peace, love, and the beauty that only comes when darkness becomes dawn.
Prayer of Love to the Crucified Lord
O Jesus, it is not the heavenly reward you have promised which impels
me to love you; neither is it the threat of hell that keep me from
It is you, O Lord, it is the sight of you affixed to the Cross and
suffering insults; it is the sight of your broken body, as well as your
pains and your death.
There is nothing you can give me to make me love you.
For even if there were no heaven and no hell I would still love you as I do.
