"Jesus on the Cross
feels the whole weight of the evil,
and with the force of God 's Love
He conquers it, He defeats it with
we can all conquer the evil
that is in us and in the world,
with the strength force of good!"
- Pope Francis-
"Oh! I would like to sing, Mary, why I Love You,
Why your sweet name thrills my heart....
And to go on saying that I am your child!"
St. Therese of the Child Jesus
"If you are happy, look upon your
and the very thought of how
He rose from the sepulchre
will gladden you.
How bright and how beautiful
was He then!
How majestic! How victorious!
He was like one emerging
from a battle in which
He had gained a great kingdom,
all of which He desires you to have
and with it Himself."
St. Teresa of Jesus
(Way of Perfection 26.4)
Our Carmelite Cardinal Anders Arborelius from Sweden.
