Tuesday : Mysteries of Sorrows

Another day in my 54 days Rosary Novena , actually I don't counting the days , I'm just praying and meditating ..
I must confess that praying Sorrowful Mysteries was never easy to me , but Saint Bridget of Sweden taught us to love Jesus Crucified . Thinking of His Passion and sorrowful death will help us to understand still better the infinite Love of God for us, and the evil of mortal sin .
In a time when humanity struggles to fulfill the moral good and eradicate the moral evils of the world, the words of St. Bridget echo through time, speaking to us from the visions from Christ that she shared. From one disturbing conversation she had with Him in 1372, she revealed these words:

“O my enemies, why do you so boldly commit such sins and do other things contrary to my will?
Why have you neglected My Passion?
Why do you not attend in your hearts to how I ’stood’ naked on the cross and cried out, full of wounds and clothed in blood?
“But your eyes and heart forget and neglect all these things.

And so you behave like prostitutes, who love the delight of the flesh, but not of its offspring.
For when they feel a living infant in their womb, at once they procure an abortion so that without losing their fleshly pleasure, they may always engage in their foul intercourse.”

Saint Bidget is known for her Revelations, which are largely meditations on the Passion of Our Lord. Let us follow in adoration of our Lord Jesus Christ Passion and pray :
Blessed are you, my Lord Jesus Christ. Fearing your passion and death, you poured forth blood from your innocent body like sweat, and still you accomplished your redemption as you desired and gave us the clearest proof of your love for all men.
Eternal blessing be yours, my Lord Jesus Christ, because in your last agony you held out to sinners the hope of pardon, when in your mercy you promised the glory of paradise to the penitent thief.
Blessed may you be, my Lord Jesus Christ. You redeemed our souls with your precious blood and most holy death, and in your mercy you led them from exile back to eternal life.
O God, who by your Holy Spirit give to some the word of wisdom, to others the word of knowledge, and to others the word of faith: We praise your Name for the gifts of grace manifested in your servant Birgitta, and we pray that your Church may never be destitute of such gifts; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
