'"He began to be heavy, He began to feel a great weariness on account of the torments that were prepared for Him." When one is weary, even pleasures are painful. Oh, what anguish united to this weariness must Jesus Christ have felt at the horrible representation which then came before his mind, of all the torments, both exterior and interior, which, during the short remainder of his life, were so cruelly to afflict his body and his blessed soul!'

St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori
