The Way of the Cross
Station #4: Jesus meets His holy Mother.
We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You.
Because by Your Holy Cross You
have redeemed the world.
My Lord Jesus Christ:
How did You feel when Your eyes met the sorrowing eyes of Your Blessed Mother? How did she manage to handle the sight of her Beloved Son as He endured such horrid sufferings? Help me to draw on the same well of strength from the Holy Spirit as You did and she did when you gazed on each other with such intimate love! Help me also to understand her strong love for me, and that she is right now caring about me and all of my trials, and that in her great motherly love for me, she is praying her most powerful prayers.
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Start the music and sing:
whelmed in miseries so deep
Christ’s dear Mother to behold?
