Tomorrow Friday 2nd May 2014 is the Passionist Memorial of the Glorious Wounds of Jesus Christ.
“In my own life, I have so often seen God’s merciful countenance, his patience; I have also seen so many people find the courage to enter the wounds of Jesus by saying to him: Lord, I am here, accept my poverty, hide my sin in your wounds, wash it away with your blood. And I have always seen that God did just that – he accepted them, consoled them, cleansed them, loved them.”
[Pope Francis, Homily, Divine Mercy Sunday, 7th April 2013]
“Never depart from the holy Wounds of Jesus Christ.”
[St. Paul of the Cross to Passionist Religious, 2nd May 1750]
