From Day 21 of the Meditations:
Consider: the anguish of heart experienced by Jesus at the sight of Mary.
He beholds her sorrowing, weeping, overwhelmed with the bitterest grief, and when the eyes of the Mother and of the Son meet, how deep a wound is inflicted on the tender Heart of Jesus! Jesus loves Mary as His Mother. Jesus, the most loving of Sons, entertains the most indescribable feelings of affection for Mary, the most amiable of mothers. How great, then, and how bitter must be His grief at beholding this beloved Mother so deeply afflicted and anguish-stricken on His account? Oh, hard indeed must that heart be which does not compassionate Jesus in this new suffering!
Saint Augustine on the fruits of daily meditation upon the Passion of Christ:
There is nothing so salutary for us as to meditate every day on what Jesus, God and Man, has endured for our sakes!
