Stations of The Cross
4th Station - Jesus Meets His Mother
V. We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you;
R. Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
From Isaiah chapter 51 vs 3
For the Lord will comfort Zion; He will comfort all her waste places.
How Mary must have grieved to see her Son, Jesus, being led to crucifixion. Our Lady shared the pain with her son, and so she also shares in His triumph over death. Our Saviour gives us this same opportunity.
Mother Mary, only a mother could feel a glimpse of your sorrow that you carried in your heart, as you followed Jesus on the way to the cross. Please give our mothers the grace to have that trust in God, when things go wrong and they have to watch their children or husbands in pain. May all mothers surrender their loved ones totally to God, as you did with your agonising son. We love you, Mother Mary.
1 Our Father - 1 Hail Mary - 1 Glory Be ...
O Jesus Crucified - for us you suffered - for us you died - on the cross
