“As they were looking on, so we too gaze on his wounds as he hangs. We see his blood as he dies. We see the price offered by the redeemer, touch the scars of his resurrection. He bows his head, as if to kiss you. His heart is made bare open, as it were, in love to you. His arms are extended that he may embrace you. His whole body is displayed for your redemption. Ponder how great these things are. Let all this be rightly weighed in your mind: as he was once fixed to the cross in every part of his body for you, so he may now be fixed in every part of your soul. ”
– St. Augustine
 
“It costs God nothing, so far as we know, to create nice things; but to convert rebellious wills cost Him crucifixion.”
― C. S. Lewis
 
“Reflect carefully on this, for it is so important that I can hardly lay too much stress on it. Fix your eyes on the Crucified and nothing else will be of much importance to you.”
― St. Teresa of Ávila
 
“When Christ died, He died for you individually just as much as if you’d been the only man in the world.”
— C. S. Lewis
