The Cross is the Gift that
God made for his friends.
Cure d'Ars

Salvation is in the faith,
happiness in the hope.

The Cross is the gift
God made for His friends.
Cure d'Ars
Let us be attached to the Cross 
as ivy has the tree for its support.
The measure of our love 
is to love without measure.
St. Bernard
Come, all ye who seek a comfort for your pain, 
strength for your weakness, hope in your sins, 
come to the Cross of Jesus. ~ Abbe Perreyve
