If You Cannot Meditate on the Passion…

At Our Lady of Perpetual Help Minor Seminary in Sriracha,Thailand

If you cannot meditate on the Passion of Jesus, speak about it to him: “Lord so loving, what was within your heart in the garden? Such pain, such blood, such bitter agony! And all for me?” At times, it will seem you can neither meditate nor remain lovingly attentive before God. You are like a statue. Do not worry! Continue to pray. Stir up your faith in God’s presence and go into him, lamenting like Saint Augustine: “O Beauty, ever ancient, ever new, I sought you outside and I had you within.” We have a treasure within.
Saint Paul of the Cross
