Fourth Station – Jesus met by His Blessed Mother

Jesus met by His Blessed Mother

We adore you O Christ and we bless you
Because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world

Standing, perhaps with John and Mary Magdalene among the crowd Mary, his mother waits to see him pass.  There is nothing she can do now to ease his pain, except just be there.  She will not need words, her presence is enough they understand each other, and her love is powerful to give him strength.

We thank you Lord for Mary’s obedienceto your call, and for her faithful and enduring love which drew her to Jesus’ side at the end when he needed her. Give us the grace to be there to respond to those who are in need – whatever it may cost.

(Our reflections and prayers for the Stations of the Cross this year have been written for us by Sister Jean Mary CHN)
