"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord

Look at Him.


  1. Look down upon me, good and gentle Jesus
    while before Your face I humbly kneel and,
    with burning soul,
    pray and beseech You
    to fix deep in my heart lively sentiments
    of faith, hope, and charity;
    true contrition for my sins,
    and a firm purpose of amendment.

    While I contemplate,
    with great love and tender pity,
    Your five most precious wounds,
    pondering over them within me
    and calling to mind the words which David,
    Your prophet, said to You, my Jesus:

    "They have pierced My hands and My feet,
    they have numbered all My bones."


    1. I love that prayer. Thanks.
