Live in the Shadow of the Cross


"We must continually remind ourselves that the greatest need in the 

world today is to centre our lives more and more in the oblational

aspect of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass; for today, when the whole 

world is galloping away from the very shadow of the Cross, we 

must embrace it and cling to it ever more firmly, in union with Jesus 

Christ.... We should never come to Holy Mass without preparation, 

and it is for this reason that, in Religious Houses, the Community 

Mass is celebrated after the Spiritual Exercises of the morning.  Of 

all the works of the Sacred Heart here below, Holy Mass together 

with Holy Communion is the Masterpiece."  

(from The Living Pyx of Jesus)
