Ave Maria Meditations
Arise, O Lord, and let Thy enemies be scattered, and let them that hate Thee flee from before Thy Face. (Ps 68:1)
Veronica wipes the Holy Face of Jesus. And should I not also, following her example, cause Thee to forget by my reparation the outrageous Thou hast received from so many sinners? Is it not for me to make amends by greater fidelity and love? Oh! This is what I wish to do, my God, to find my glory in Thy humiliations and sorrows.
