Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother.... (John 19:25)
This day Our Lady watched her son be crucified by the powers of fear. Her heart was pierced as his hands and feet were pierced. Her tears flowed down her loving face as his blood flowed forth. Her tongue whispered prayers of desperation and mercy as Jesus said, "Father, forgive them." She cried out in anguish and fainted as her son gave up his spirit.
Our Lady shared in Our Lord's death.
Do we allow ourselves to feel the pain of those crucified by fear in this life or do we turn a blind eye Let us be as Our Lady and stand by the cross always, let us stand by those who are crucified and let us intervene as possible...
Our Lady trembles this day. We tremble with her.
