Even though your sufferings were very great, do not lose heart or give in to despondency. But tell Me, my child, who has dared to wound your heart? – Divine Mercy in My Soul
Many times, our hearts are so heavy that we can’t even pray for what we need. We just feel overwhelmed. We want rest but we can’t find it. We know we have many questions at the back of our minds, but we can’t even start naming what these questions are.
Whenever we feel like this, may we find comfort before the crucified Christ. Sometimes, we need no words in order to pray. But we need to seek His Face and to lay down before Him our many burdens and tears.
At The Foot of the Cross
At the foot of the cross
that’s where I want to be
To gaze upon my God
with boundless love for me
To kiss His feet pierced with nails
to worship and adore
Him who was pierced by a lance
Him who was crowned with thorns
I cannot ever understand
all the reasons why
Why He must be crucified like this
why He must suffer and die
But there at the foot of the cross
I feel His great mercy for me
Blood and water flowed from His heart
out of His great love for me
How else can I even understand
how infinite and great is His love
if not by the cross, yes, by the cross
where all is gained when all was lost
I thank you Lord for bringing me
where alone my soul can stay
It is there alone where I can find healing
it is there alone where I can be saved!
“For me prayer is a surge of the heart, it is a simple look towards Heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.” -St. Therese of Lisieux
But he was pierced for our transgressions. He was crushed for our iniquities. The punishment that brought our peace was on him; and by his wounds we are healed. – Isaiah 53, WEB
