Editor’s Note:  In his book, The School of Jesus Crucified, Father Ignatius of the Side of Jesus, Passionist, outlines 25 points as a “Practical Rule of Christian Life for Daily Observance”.  

Point 24

“Fall asleep in the midst of pious thoughts, such as these, and thus you will sanctify even your sleep.  When you wake in the night, raise your heart to your suffering Jesus, who should be the beloved object of all your thoughts and affections.  Say to Him: My Jesus, I am Thine, do Thou save me.  My Jesus, dying on the Cross for my salvation, grant that I may ever love Thee.  My beloved Jesus, I thank Thee for all Thy love.  I compassionate Thee in all Thy sufferings.”
