St. Bridget, when a child of ten years, saw in a vision our Saviour in the act of being scourged. The good child, moved to compassion, said: “Who has disfigured you thus?” Jesus answered: “Not the Jews only have done it, but all those who despise my love.” And who are these? Especially those Christians who do not endeavor to restrain the passions of their flesh. If your conscience reproaches you with having scourged your Redeemer anew by committing such heinous sins, repair the outrage by a virtuous and penitential life. “Let not sin therefore, reign in your mortal body so as to obey the lusts thereof,” (Rom. 6: 12); on the contrary, “mortify your members which are upon the earth,” (Col. 3: 5); and make no provision for the flesh in its concupiscences.—Rom. 13: 14.
