MEDITATION ON THE PASSION OF OUR LORD: Jesus Said Unto Him, Thou Hast Said: I Am

GIOTTO di Bondone 
No. 32 Scenes from the Life of Christ: 16. Christ before Caiaphas (detail) 
1304-06
Jesus said unto him, thou hast said: I am; but I say unto you, hereafter yes shall see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of the power of God, and coming in the clouds of Heaven.
Consider first, that Christ being adjured by the name of the living God, did hold his peace no longer, both because he would not seem to avoid death by holding his peace, and also that thou shouldest always reverence the name of God. (Thou hast said,) That is, so it is, as thou hast spoken, and as thy conscience doth witness unto thyself.

Consider secondly, that he made mention of the Judgment to come in the words of Daniel. First that he might take away the jealousy of his affecting a Kingdom, because he sought not an earthly but a heavenly and eternal Kingdom. Secondly that they should abstain from this evil judgment, for fear of the judgment to come. Learn first in all thy actions to remember thy last end. Secondly in all accusations to have patience, because power shall be given thee to Judge thy accusers, and those which have afflicted thee. Thirdly always, but especially at the end of thy life, to confess a truth, even though it be great loss both to thy body and goods. And pray thy Lord, that he will strike thy flesh with wholesome fear, and inflame thy heart through the Meditation of his Passion.

Fr. Francis Costerus S.J. 1616
