SPEECH
Lord, be me always good Pasteur, in spite of my ingratitude, and though I would have very often withdrawn myself from your control, open to me the doors of your kingdom, and made me enter there by your holy wounds. Alas! You are overpowered crueler sufferings, I want to take my share of it. Protect me by your holy passion; because, without your scourging, I would be whipped acute rods of my sins; without your wounds, I then to escape the wounds from the demon, and without your death, I would die in my hardening. Ah! How much my heart could grow rich by all that you suffered for her! But I had misfortune to flee your cross and your passion, and therefore I became so poor. Misfortune with me! Because by fleeing the opprobrium of your cross, as the world calls it, I deserved to be scorned you, of your angels, your saints and all the men. Amen.
