Saint Paul of the Cross: Saints and Scripture Sunday

On Wednesday, the Church celebrated the optional of Saint Paul of the cross, founder of the Passionists. If you don’t know much about Saint Paul of the Cross, it would be worth it to get to know him. 🙂 You can read about him here and here.

St. Paul of the Cross had a deep understanding of the sacrifice of Jesus and the love poured off from the Cross. He had great zeal for souls and continually offered (often severe) sacrifices and mortifications for their conversion. Of course, most of us aren’t called to do severe penances or mortifications, but we (speaking mostly for myself) can all probably follow his example and sacrifice ourselves a little more!

Here are a few nuggets of wisdom from Saint Paul of the Cross:

“It is an excellent and holy practice to call to mind and meditate on our Lord’s Passion, since it is by this path that we shall arrive at union with God. In this, the holiest of all schools, true wisdom is learned, for it was there that all the saints became wise.”

“Look upon the face of the Crucified, who invites you to follow Him. He will be a Father, Mother–everything to you.”

“The world lives unmindful of the sufferings of Jesus, which are the miracle of miracles of the Love of God”
