"Enemies have stretched out their hands over all her precious things; she has even seen the nations invade her sanctuary, those whom you forbade to enter your congregation.
All her people groan as they search for bread; they trade their treasures for food to revive their strength. Look, O Lord, and see how worthless I have become.
Is it nothing to you, all who pass by? Look and see if there is any sorrow like my sorrow which was brought on me, which the Lord inflicted on the day of his fierce anger."
"Deep within us, shared among us, may we ever keep the mind and heart of Jesus Christ. Deep within us, shared among us, may we ever keep the mind and heart of Jesus Christ." ~ Passion Antiphon
