‘Sweetest Jesus! You who were sinless God suffered so, so many wrongs, so much controversy so many curses, so much mockery from such a crowd of people who hated you and bore you such ill-will. And you suffered all this with tolerance, for my love and my salvation. And should I, then, a sinful, impassioned and wretched man, complain and ask why my Elder gives me the bitter medicine of my salvation? I get what I deserve. So I have no excuse and I just have to put up with it and shoulder the Cross Your goodness has given me for my salvation’.
