take up your cross...


Most High Glorious God, I accept this Cross of mental illness I have received. I will not rebel but accept this as an oportunity to learn humility, to become compassionate and to offer my suffering for the intentions of Your Sacred Heart. I love You and I know that You love me and that just as we walk together to Calvary, You will guide me to the Resurrection. Amen.

It is by Salvador Dali. Probably the only work of his that I like, but he actually based this painting on a drawing that St. John of the Cross made.
