“Let us take our cross and begin our ascent to Calvary with courage and joy: through holy communion, Jesus our bread of life is with us and gives us life and strength. It is a strength that comes from his joy, an energy that comes from his passion. Without the passion, without this joy, nothing is possible. We shall not waste our strength in useless things, but shall concentrate on our suffering in search of the Love.”
