Station IV: Jesus Meets His Mother

What agony for a mother to bear. To see her only Son march towards death….to meet an untimely and early grave. What sword must have pierced her heart to know that this was the way it must all end. To lose her child, to lose a part of her soul, and–perhaps worst of all–unable to intervene.

She sees her little Jesus bearing a Cross that is far too heavy for him…far beyond his strength…..and all she can do is watch.

As he draws near she clings to him…reminding him of the tender touch of love. Their eyes meet….finding solace if only for a moment…that here and now…they are together.

My God meets his weeping Mother for me, and does so with love.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, have mercy on us sinners. Remember us when you come into your kingdom. +
