The Consolation

Of Christ and His Mother.
When Saint John, the Apostle and Evangelist, the beloved disciple of Christ and after the Most Holy Virgin Theotokos, the singular son of the Cross of Christ, having been relegated to the island of Patmos, suffered many things for the Faith of Christ, he was consoled in the same place by God with many celestial and divine revelations. For, as that Apostle says: As there has abounded in us the sufferings of Christ, so also through Christ abound our consolations, for, according tSaint Lorenzo da Brindisi (1559-1619)o the number of my sorrows in my heart, Thy consolations have made my soul rejoice
~Saint Lorenzo da Brindisi (1559-1619)
