Message of the day

Holy Tuesday: “The Cross on your shoulders, with a smile on your lips”

The more you belong to Christ, the more grace you will obtain to be effective in this world and to be happy in eternity. But you must make up your mind to follow the way of self surrender: the Cross on your shoulders, with a smile on your lips, and a light in your soul. (The Way of the Cross, Second Station, 3)

That voice you hear within you: 'What a heavy yoke you have freely taken upon yourself!' ... is the voice of the devil; the heavy burden... of your pride. Ask Our Lord for humility, and you too will understand those words of Jesus: iugum enim meum suave est, et onus meum leve (Matt 11:30), which I like to translate freely, as follows: My yoke is freedom, my yoke is love, my yoke is unity, my yoke is life, my yoke is fruitfulness. (The Way of the Cross, Second Station, 4)

There is a kind...

Saint Josemaría Escrivá
"Each day be conscious of your duty to be a saint. A saint! And that doesn't mean doing strange things. It means a daily struggle in the interior life and in heroically fulfilling your duty right through to the end.”
SAINT JOSEMARÍA, Founder of Opus Dei
