Holy Week Invocation

Meister Eckhart
"NOW, O my soul, and all ye who have been redeemed by the precious blood of Christ, come, and let us go with inward compassion and fervent devotion to the blessed palm-tree of the Cross, which is laden with the fairest fruit. Let us pass like the bee from flower to flower, for all are full of honey. Let us consider and ponder with the greatest care the sacred words of Christ, which He spoke upon the Cross; for everything that comes From this blessed Tree is wholesome and good.  
"In the Cross of our Lord and Savior are centered all our salvation, all our health, all our life, all our glory; and, "If we suffer with Him," saith the Apostle, "we shall also reign with Him." That we may not be found ungrateful for these inestimable benefits, let us call upon heaven and earth, and all that in them is, to join us in praising and blessing and giving thanks to God."

(From Patricia: I set the week's quotes off on the wrong foot. Yesterday's post, though an excellent one, was set to go out in a few weeks - when there will be more on that subject. This week's quotes will be dedicated to Holy Week and Easter.)
