With Christ I am nailed to the cross: but I live, now not I: but Christ liveth in me: I live in the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and delivered Himself for me, alleluia, alleluia. Introit (Galatians 2:19-10)
If you partake of the sufferings of Christ, rejoice, that when His glory shall be revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy. Alleluia. Communion (1Peter 4:13)
I went to Mass this evening with the intention of praying for the grieving mothers who are right now mourning the loss of their dear wee babes whom they will never get to meet here on this earth, and found these words of today's propers for the feast of St. Paul of the Cross most fitting. May they feel Our Lady's comfort where she is so often found, at the foot of the Cross.
