Eternal Praise

Feast of St. Bridget, Religious (1303 – 1373)

Eternal praise be to you, my Lord Jesus Christ, for the time you endured on the cross the greatest torments and sufferings for us sinners. The sharp pain of your wounds fiercely penetrated even to your blessed soul and cruelly pierced your most sacred heart until finally you sent forth your spirit in peace, bowed your head, and humbly commended yourself into the hands of God your Father, and your whole body remained cold in death.

Today’s Reflection:

Jesus took to the cross with Him every suffering, contradiction, and trial I have faced and will face in my life. By tucking my tribulations into His most sacred wounds, especially His most Sacred Heart, I can find strength to endure and the courage to hope. Which one pain do I wish to place there now?
