The Suffering of Jesus for Me
“Let us think deeply about the suffering of Jesus and let us say to ourselves: this is for my sake. Even if I had been the only person in the world, he would have done it. He did it for me. Let us kiss the crucifix and say: for my sake, thank you, Jesus, for me.” There is only one way to freedom from all fear: To look at Jesus Crucified and be moved by His love to suffer with Him. Love overcomes all fear. If we are at first not moved, we must persevere. Ask for the power of His Spirit.”
The biblical themes of light removing darkness and life overcoming death runs through the entire Mass, which consists of four main parts: the Service of Light, the Liturgy of the Word, Liturgy of Baptism and Liturgy of the Eucharist.
