"Citizens of Calvary, this is our Gethsemane. At the prospect of painful death our human nature is terrified and distressed; but Jesus is with us. I am going to give you the One who is the strength of the weak. Jesus at the beginning of his Passion was comforted by an angel; we are comforted and supported by Jesus himself. Soon we shall be with Him. Citizens of Calvary, let us die for Him."
(Blessed Niceforo Diez and 25 companions, Passionist martyrs.)
