The Sorrows of Mary, Part IV

The Burial of Jesus

Dear Mary, loving hands carefully remove Jesus from the cross and reverently prepare him for burial.  One last time you hold and behold your beloved Son.  To lose someone through illness or accident is difficult, but Jesus suffered a brutal execution and nothing on earth can console your heart.

Gently, tenderly, lovingly the last rites are accomplished and you must say your final farewell to your Son. 

Mary, when we face loss and suffering, be with us.
