This is the Tumblr extension of my primary website - Christopher's Apologies - which can be found at christophersmith-op.com. I'll be putting things I like: religion (mostly things related to Catholicism), theology, philosophy, social justice, politics, music, digital photography, and anything else that strikes me.
You can also find me at...

Fr. F.X. Lasance - Visits to Jesus in the Tabernacle
Oh, if I loved Thee, my Jesus—if I loved Thee, the consideration of all that Thou hast suffered for me would render all sufferings, all contempt, and all vexations sweet to me. Oh, grant me, I beseech Thee, Thy love, in order that I may endure with pleasure, or at least with patience, the little Thou givest me to suffer. Oh, let me not die so ungrateful to all Thy loving-kindnesses. I desire, in all the tribulations that shall happen to me, to say constantly, My Jesus, I embrace this trial for Thy love; I will suffer it in order to please Thee.
Pray for us, O most sorrowful Virgin!
