...he came back to labor once again in the area he loved so well, so that the people who had been the great joy of his early priesthood might become the consolation of his closing years. And those people prayed with him and suffered with him and came to admire him all the more these last seven months as he took on the fullness of the image of Christ who offered up His pains and ultimately His life for the salvation of His people.

 

..some might feel, as the Apostles did on the evening of Good Friday, that this life had held even greater promise for the days to come---but no one who opens the pages of the Gospel will ever again think that a life that ends in its middle thirties cannot be rich in accomplishments and in the blessings it brings to mankind....and no one who gazes at a crucifix can come away with the notion that a painful death was a waste of time
