"He who exerciseth himself devoutly in the Passion of our Lord shall find abundantly all that is useful and necessary for him." ~ Thomas a Kempis
Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
~ I Peter 2.21-24
