It Was Not In Jest

At the shrine of Mary Annai Velangkanni in Medan, Sumatra, Indonesia

O Christ, Son of God, as I contemplate the great sufferings You endured for us on the Cross, I hear You say to my soul, “It is not in jest that I have loved you.” These words open my eyes, and I see clearly all that Your love has made You do for me. I see what You suffered. I see that You died. I see that it was of a profound, ineffable love.
Saint Angela of Foligno
