See, I am standing by you.
I am your Lord.
You are the work of My hands.
Why have You not known me, because in the beginning I Myself formed Adam from the earth and gave him breath?
Open your mouth yourself so that I may give you breath.
Stand on your feet and receive strength for yourself. For I am the strength of the whole creation.
Stretch out your hands, and I shall give them strength. For I am the straight staff.
I command the foul odor to depart from you. For I am the sweet odor of the trees of paradise.
Behold, the prophecy of Isaiah the prophet will be fulfilled in you, namely, “I shall open your tombs, and I shall bring you forth.”
quoted in On the Way to the Cross
