Saint Paul of the CrossBlessed Redeemer, Saint Paul of the Cross had a devotion to Your Passion since early childhood and grew up adoring the Blessed Sacrament.  Before he was ordained, You set him to work forming a new religious community, the Passionists, with the mission of preaching the glory of Your cross.  I ask him to pray for my home, my parish, ministry teams, and other communities to which I belong.  O Jesus, may Your holy cross always remind us to make sacrifices for the sake of love.  Bind us together in service and unity.  Teach us to lead others to salvation and to reflect on Your Passion.  Saint Paul, pray for us.  Amen.

QUOTES by Saint Paul of the Cross

I hope that God will save me through the merits of the Passion of Jesus. The more difficulties in life, the more I hope in God. By God’s grace I will not lose my soul, but I hope in His mercy. >>

Oh my God! Teach me how to express myself. I wish that I were all aflame with love! More than that: I wish that I could sing hymns of praise in the fire of love, and extol the marvelous mercies that uncreated Love has bestowed on us! Is it not truly a duty to thank God for His gifts? >>

Live in such a way that all may know that you bear outwardly as well as inwardly the image of Christ crucified, the model of all gentleness and mercy. >>

If we cannot spend much time at prayer, no matter: to act well is always to pray well. Be attentive to your duties, and at the same time be attentive to God by frequently purifying your heart in the immense ocean of divine love. >>

Entrust yourself entirely to God. He is a Father, and a most loving Father at that, who would rather let heaven and earth collapse than abandon anyone who trusted in Him. >>
