A beautiful meditation for today and every day.
"Jesus is nailed to the cross...Let us halt before this image of pain, before the suffering Son of God. Let us look upon Him at time of presumptuousness and pleasure, in order to learn to respect limits and to see the superficiality of all merely material goods. Let us look upon Him at times of trial and tribulation and realize that it is then that we are closest to God.. Let us nail ourselves to Him, resisting the temptation to stand apart or to join others in mocking him."
— Pope Benedict XVI
