From: What Jesus Saw from the Cross, by A. G. Sertillanges, O.P.
“I adore Thee, my God, by the Cross, by Jesus on the Cross, with Jesus on the Cross, as Jesus adored Thee on the Cross, in a spirit of commemoration and trust, but also in a spirit of obedience and sacrifice…. I ask of Thee all that I need in the name of the Cross, that is, in the name of the same memory, in the name of the same merits, to which I humbly unite those things that are wanting, according to the exhortation of the Apostle.”
(Cf. Colossians 1:24)
