The crucified Christ-- and the Crucifix--is crucial: how can we understand the Resurrection without the Crucifixion-- via the Cross in every aspect of our lives? To focus on the Resurrection while ignoring the Passion and Death of Christ is presumption. And presumption leads soon enough to despair: a loss of hope in God's mercy, forgiveness, and love. To know that God is with us all the way, we have to learn to understand what it means for Jesus to descend into Hell for us.
Jesus, your love for me is unlike anything I've ever known! To think of you, hanging on the cross for me, is unbearable! I am so unworthy of You and all You have sacrificed! Thank You for Never giving up on me! Thank You for never leaving me! Thank You for saving my life, time and time again! Every breath I take, from now until I am in your loving arms Lord, I want it all to be to glorify your Precious and Holy name!!

St. Gabriel Possenti (1838-1862) was born in Assisi and one of 13 children. As a young man he enjoyed an extravagant and worldly life. He later shocked everyone by wanting to be a Passionist priest. His life was then marked with prayer, sacrifice, and devotion to Our Lady of Sorrows. He died of tuberculosis a year before ordination. Many miracles were attributed to him after his death. He is the patron saint of Catholic youth, seminarians, clerics, students. His feast day is February 27th.
