Passion of Christ, comfort me!
Comfort me for the day is long and weary; comfort me as I fight
my way up the path of life to the heaven of Thy Sacred Heart; comfort me in sorrows, in pain, in sickness. Comfort me,
when temptation rages round me, and every hope seems lost.And when that last dread hour has sounded and my eyes are closing
on this world of sin. O Passion of Christ! Comfort me then, and lead me gently to Thy wounded Sacred Feet above. Amen
W. Doyle. S.J.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me! Strengthen me under the pressure of temptation. Strengthen me
when principle is at stake. Strengthen me to do Your Will, My God. Strengthen me in moments of suffering, in times of loneliness,
in periods of depression. Strengthen me that I may never swerve from You, dear Christ, nor weaken through human respect, through
a desire to be popular, through hope of social distinction. Strengthen me to accept my cross and carry it generously to the end. On the battlefield
of life, stand by me that I may never prove a traitor in the ranks. Stand by me that I may not be dazzled by the glitter and
glow of the enemy camp.
