“So many people, so many Christians, pass time gazing at the Crucified and there they find everything, because they have understood the Holy Spirit teaches them that therein lies all science, all of God’s love and all Christian wisdom. True reasoning – the most beautiful way of thinking which also explains everything –  is the cross of Christ, is Christ crucified, who is scandal and madness (1 Cor 1:23-24). But He is the way. God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son. Why? So that everyone who believes in Him might not perish but might have eternal life. This is the love of a Father who wants His children with Him.”

Psalm 16

Lord, you will show us the path of life.

Keep me, O God, for in you I take refuge;
I say to the LORD, “My Lord are you.”
O LORD, my allotted portion and my cup,
you it is who hold fast my lot.

Lord, you will show us the path of life.

I bless the LORD who counsels me;
even in the night my heart exhorts me.
I set the LORD ever before me;
with him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed.

Lord, you will show us the path of life.

Therefore my heart is glad and my soul rejoices,
my body, too, abides in confidence;
because you will not abandon my soul to the netherworld,
nor will you suffer your faithful one to undergo corruption.

Lord, you will show us the path of life.

You will show me the path to life,
abounding joy in your presence,
the delights at your right hand forever.

Lord, you will show us the path of life.
