The World in Flames

The world is in flames: do you wish to put them out? Contemplate the cross; from His open heart the blood of the Redeemer pours, blood which can put out even the flames of hell....Through the power of the cross you can be present wherever there is pain, carried there by your compassionate charity, by that very charity which you draw from the divine heart. That charity enables you to spread everywhere the most precious blood in order to ease pain, save and redeem.

~ St. Teresa Benedicta, Carmelite Proper of the Liturgy of the Hours Share
