The Fourth Station: Jesus Meets His Mother
We adore you, O Christ and we bless you.
Because by your holy cross, you have saved the world.
Jesus’ mother, Mary, pushes herself to the front of the crowd and meets her son, Jesus. How can she cope knowing that her son is in such pain and will soon have a terrible death?
No mother should have to go through this. Why doesn’t someone take her away? I would not want my mother to suffer as she is suffering. Where does she get her strength? I can see she is determined to be there for you to the very end.
Oh Jesus, help us to always be a comfort to our own mothers, as you comforted your mother on that Friday. They love us so much and their thoughts and prayers are always for their children.
