A Friday Meditation
Lord Jesus, by Your suffering and death, You made it possible for us to be holy and to share in the eternal joy of Your resurrection. With trust and confidence we look upon You on Your cross and strive to unite ourselves with You in the passion of our daily lives.
Look down upon us and draw us close to You. Give us, we beg You, a share of Your courage in times of adversity and anxiety. Strengthen us in our struggle against physical and spiritual evil. In our efforts to imitate You in Your Passion, help us to look upon those around us with loving care and concern.
We pray that those who have turned away from You may be drawn back to You through the merits You gained for us on Calvary, so that all of us might live in never-ending peace with You forever. Amen.
