Our Lady of Sorrow     by:   St. Peter Julian Eymard, SSS

September 15 – Our Lady of Sorrow. The holy old man Simeon predicted that a sword would pierce her heart. We know what it’s like to suffer a lot, but do we understand the power of the word a sword? From this moment, Mary has more joys, she understand the prophecies and all that her divine Son had to suffer.

The Triumph of the Cross     by:   St. Peter Julian Eymard, SSS

September 14 - We need love – that is what makes crosses loveable. Only our Lord Jesus Christ can make crosses loveable. It is by loving Jesus, and Jesus crucified (cf. 1 Cor 2:2), said St. Paul, that we can love them – since we cannot separate the cross from Jesus crucified and his love. If we don’t love Jesus, we will not love the cross and penance… Take all your crosses, place them in our Lord, by making them so to speak melt in him, and you will begin seeing the cross as the most tender object of his love for you and for all his followers. Place the cross in the attractiveness of the love of our Lord, and it becomes beautiful and loveable –like green wood, that does not give heat, nor light nor warmth. But, placed in a blazing fire, it becomes the life of the fire. That is how the cross that had been an instrument for execution has now become loveable in the heart of our Lord. (Conference, March 12, 1861)
