The Fourth Station, Jesus Meets His Mother
We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You!
Because by your Holy Cross, You have redeemed the world!
Simeon had prophesied that a sword would pierce Mary's heart. It's hard to fathom what all went through her mind as she saw all that You were experiencing in your Passion.
The look that passed between the two of you as you walked the way to Golgotha must have spoke volumes, sharing each other's pain and both offering a final fiat to the Father's will.
Lord, I know how difficult it is to see someone I love suffer in any way, or have someone see my sufferings and heartaches. Help me to always remember that all those work together unto good for those who love You.
