Good Friday Poem by St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross

Poem written by St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross on Good Friday, 1938

"Today I stood with you beneath the cross
And felt more clearly than I ever did
That you became our Mother only there.

But those whom you have chosen for companions
To stand with you around the eternal throne,

They must stand with you beneath the Cross,
And with the lifeblood of their bitter pains,
Must purchase heavenly glory for those souls
Whom God's own Son entrusted to their care."
