The Fourth Station - Jesus Meets His Mother
We adore you O Christ and we praise you.
Because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world!
Christ Speaks: My mother sees me whipped. She sees me kicked and driven like a beast of burden. She counts my every wound. Through it all her soul cries in agony, because he is a mother and I am her child, but no protest, no complaint is uttered from her lips or even enters her thoughts. She shares my struggle, because she is a mother, and I share hers. We hide no pain, no sorrow, from each other’s eyes. This is my Father's will.
We Speak: Loving Jesus, we know what you are telling us. To be aware of the pain of those we love is harder than to bear our own. To carry our cross after you, we, too, must stand and watch the sufferings of our dear ones - the heartaches, sicknesses, struggles and grief of those we love. And we must let them watch ours, too. We do believe - for those who love you all things work together unto good!
