Redemptive Suffering

O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, We offer You our prayers, works, joys and sufferings of this day for all the intentions of Your Sacred Heart, in union with the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered throughout the world, in reparation for our sins, for the intentions of all our relatives and friends, and in particular for the intentions of the pope. Amen.


Many people are peaceable as long as no one interferes with them, and all goes in accordance with their own will; but the slightest contradiction irritates them terribly. Such people are like stagnant water, which is all well enough as long as it is left alone; but stir it up, and it emits a most unpleasant odor.
