These quotes open up the mystery of Jesus' death in a whole new way.

The saints all understood that Jesus’ Passion, death and resurrection were the central key to entering into a deeper prayer life. They meditated on the Passion frequently and it led them into a more complete union with God.

As St. Bonaventure boldly proclaims, “He who desires to go on advancing from virtue to virtue, from grace to grace, should meditate continually on the Passion of Jesus … there is no practice more profitable for the entire sanctification of the soul than the frequent meditation of the sufferings of Jesus Christ.”

This reality is clearly present in their many writings, which can open up for us the mystery of Jesus’ crucifixion in a entirely new way.

Here are five profound quotes on Jesus’ passion that reveal to us the many mysteries that occurred on Mount Calvary almost 2,000 years ago.
