Those Who Have Continued With Me in My Trials

“Upon the very eve of His death, Jesus said to His disciples: “You are those who have continued with me in my trials;  and I assign to you, as my Father assigned to me, a kingdom.” (Luke 22:28-29) This divine promise likewise concerns us. If we “continue” with Jesus in His “trials,” if we contemplate His sufferings with faith and love, Christ will come, when our last hour strikes, to take us with Him that we may enter into the kingdom of His Father.” (Bl. Columba Marmion, Christ in His Mysteries, ch. 13 [Le Christ dans ses mystères])
