These wounds of His: how tangible they are to us in the history of our time! Indeed, time and again He allows Himself to be wounded for our sake. What certainty of His mercy, what consolation do His wounds mean for us! And what security they give us regarding His identity: "My Lord and my God!". And what a duty they are for us, the duty to allow ourselves in turn to be wounded for Him!
God's mercy accompanies us daily.
