Good Friday - Dying with Jesus


When you are experiencing an agony of suffering in your spirit, cry out as Jesus did on the Cross, "Father, into your hands I commend my spirit" (Luke 23:46). In this way you will please our wonderful Father. Your agony will end and you will die a mystical death to rise in Christ Jesus to a life of perfect love.

St. Paul of the Cross

Prayer: Dear Jesus, may I accept my cup from the Father as you did and, like you, commend myself to his love. I trust that whatever I accept from him can only lead to deeper life and love. O Jesus, you are my life, my love, my eternity!
