In the midst of your preparations for Easter, in your imagination go to Mary’s home in Nazareth and be aware of how she must be grieving the death of her Son.
How does Mary’s humanness touch you in her time of loss?
What feeling fills your heart?
Heritage word—“If we love, if we give ourselves time to feel the pain of the world, it will crucify us.”
(Richard Rohr quoted by Sister Constance Marie, 10th Provincial of the Toledo Province)
