Christ who is your life
is hanging before you so that
you may look at the Cross as in a mirror.
There you will be able to know how mortal were your wounds,
that no medicine other than the Blood of the Son of God could heal.
If you look closely, you will be able to realize
how great your human dignity and your value are….
Nowhere other than looking at himself
in the mirror of the Cross can man
better understand how much he is worth.
Saint Anthony of Padua
