How beautiful it is to stand before the Crucifix, simply to be under the Lord’s gaze, so full of love. (EG 264)

Jesus teaches us to not be ashamed of touching human misery, of touching his flesh in our brothers and sisters who suffer. (EG 270)

In the Gospel we can hear Jesus speaking to us every day: may we always carry with us a small copy of the Gospel!

Jesus is our hope. Nothing – not even evil or death – is able to separate us from the saving power of his love.

May we learn to say “thank you” to God and to one another. We teach children to do it, and then we forget to do it ourselves!

Christian love is loving without counting the cost. This is the lesson of the Good Samaritan; this is the lesson of Jesus.
