The Lord was going toward His voluntary Passion -St. Theophanis the Recluse

The only thing that He has before his eyes is death, the last mystery by which He will complete His mission which was our salvation.

Let us also immerge into a fertile and productive reflection concerning the event of death in order to draw out the good hope regarding the salvation of our souls, which are so heavily burdened with sins and do not know how to be peaceful, detached as they are from the awakening of consciousness and from the knowledge that the righteous judgment of God is imminent, fearful and upright.
