|V.||We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you:||R.||Because by your holy cross|
you have redeemed the world!
Jesus said: "Give to everyone who begs from you; and if anyone takes away your goods, do not ask for them again. Do to others as you would have them do to you."
Help me, O Lord, that my hands may be merciful and filled with good deeds, so that I may do only good to my neighbours... Help me, that my feet may be merciful, so that I may hurry to assist my neighbour, overcoming my own fatigue and weariness. My true rest is in the service of my neighbour... O my Jesus, transform me into yourself, for you can do all things.
Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska
Is there one who would not weep,
whelmed in miseries so deep,
Christ's dear Mother to behold?
