“Gaze on me, O my children, if you will, for I am helpless; gaze on your Maker, whether in contempt or in faith and love.  Here I wait, upon the Cross, the appointed time of grace and mercy; here I wait till the end of the world, silent and motionless, for the conversion of the sinful and consolation of the just; here I remain in weakness and shame, though I am so great in heaven, till the end, patiently expecting My full catalogue of souls, who, when time is at length over, shall be the reward of My passion and the triumph of My grace to all eternity.”

…a meditation from Blessed John Henry Newman – Discourse 15
