ARDEO. ADVERSIS. CLARVIS.
"For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain." (Philippians
VIVO -- XI
Christ is life for me, complete life,
Death's ceremony will be my profit, not the end.
I AM HEALED
"For he hath torn, and he will heal us." (Hosea 6:1)
SANOR -- XII
When he burns, he cures; he heals, when he wounds;
He anoints when he pierces;
He cuts, but he does not kill with the sword.
I AM ENDANGERED
"Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of the water spouts."
PERICLITOR -- XIII
The wave tosses, the storm exults, and the rain pours down,
But the shell of hope lightens the heart of every trouble.
I AM CRUCIFIED
"I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live: yet not I, but
Christ liveth in me." (Galatians 2:19)
CRUCIFIGOR -- XIV
I live, indeed, my life and signs are directed upward:
How often, Christ, am I pierced on your cross.
"As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men."
MEDITOR -- XV
The centuries fly by, the days pass away,
Every man must work for the good, while there is an hour of time.
I AM REDEEMED
"If riches increase, set not your heart upon them." (Psalms
REDIMOR -- XVI
Even the things which pass away often bind and capture the
heart. Take the key from the Lord, you will be free.
I BECOME SWEET
"To the one we are the savour of death unto death, and to the
other the savour of life unto life." (2 Corinthians 2:16)
MELLIFICO -- XVII
The cross, the bitterness, the smell of Christ are deadly to
others, but to me they are life, the cross is love and sweet scent.
I AM NOTHING
"For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal."
NIL SUM -- XVIII
I am nothing, but I am lightened by the Gospel and am
triumphant. Thus grace prevails over the law, I seek the
"For ye are not under the law, but under grace." (Romans 6:14)
PRAE PONDERO -- XIX
The heart, stained on the rosy altar of Christ's blood,
Overcomes the weight of the law by the triumphing
weight of the cross.
I BUILD MYSELF UP
"A wise man which built his house upon a rock." (Matthew 7:24)
SUPERAEDIFICOR -- XX
Christ is a rock for me, hope and a pillar of safety,
Upon which I am built, while the wave of Styx rages.
