It is a good practice to meditate on the Wounds of our Lord. The work, “School of Jesus Crucified” suggests that in the turmoil of our days we should choose a particular wound to have recourse to throughout the day. We can attend to our Lord and seek rest in His particular Wound. We can make acts of love, of faith, of hope; we can seek the grace to grow in a particular virtue.
I encourage you to devote your day in a particular way to the Holy Wound in the Left Foot of Christ.
May your refuge this day be the Wound of the Left Foot of Our Lord. Ask in particular for the grace of holy perseverance. Trod the Way to Calvary embracing each cross you will be confronted with today and throughout this week. Be able to say with the Holy Apostle, “I have been crucified with Christ..”
I adore Thee, Jesus; I love Thee and praise Thee. In union with all the souls that are still detained far from Thee in the purging flames of Purgatory and who yearn to be with Thee, I praise, worship, and adore the Holy Wound of Thy left Foot. Have mercy on those souls who hunger while awaiting Thy mercy. Come to the aid of those tried by life’s difficulties and all those who walk in darkness. Allow them to discover that Thou art their only hope. Amen.
