now you are lifted up and glorified, so that in revealing the infinite love of the Father you can draw all people to yourself.
What agony and pain you endured for love of me. On the cross you knew me by name and you suffered to redeem me.
All my sins and the sins of the whole world were nailed to the cross.
For this sacrifice of love you came into the world.
I want to live and to die for you and with you.
I offer you all my pain and sorrow and identify with your forgiveness of those who hurt you.
―from The Way of Love by Fr Johan Strydom
