For as the sufferings of Christ
abound in us: so also by Christ
doth our comfort abound.
2 Corinthians 1:5
[...] a certain religious was so tormented by
scruples, that some times he was almost driven
to despair, but having great devotion to Mary,
the mother of sorrows, he had recourse to her
in the agony of his spirit, and was much comforted
by contemplating her dolors.
Death came, and the devil tormented him more than ever
with scruples, and tempted him to despair. When, behold
our merciful mother, seeing her poor son so afflicted,
appeared to him, and said: “And why, oh my son, art thou
so overcome with sorrow, thou who hast so often consoled
me by thy compassion for my sorrows? “ Be comforted,” she
said to him; “Jesus sends me to thee to console thee; be
comforted, rejoice, and come with me to paradise.” And at
these words the devout religious tranquilly expired, full
of consolation and confidence.
