St. Augustine

The death of the Lord our God should not be a cause of shame for us; rather, it should be our greatest hope, our greatest glory. In taking upon Himself the death that He found in us, He has most faithfully promised to give us life in Him, such as we cannot have of ourselves.

Richard Crashaw

On the Water of our Lord's Baptism.

Each blest drop on each blest limb,
Is wash't itself, in washing Him :
'Tis a gem while it stays here ;
While it falls hence 'tis a tear.

St. Therese of Lisieux

In the cross is infusion of heavenly sweetness: in the cross is strength of mind: in the cross is joy of spirit.
