When a child is physically and/or mentally suffering and their is nothing the child's mother can do... but watch; I don't know about you, but as the child it only makes it harder. You can feel your mothers heart breaking. You can feel her agony which far surpasses the pain you are actually feeling.
Jesus, was so vulnerable, embarrassed, naked, nailed to the cross. His blood was spilling for us. The weight of our sins was on His shoulders. Jesus' crown of thorns, causing blood to drip down His face and into His eyes; He blinked so He could see clearly for a moment before His eyes filled with blood again. He looked at His mother. He could see her heart being pierced as a result of His pain. The unbearable pain of His Passion suddenly became so small compared to the way His heart ached as He saw His mother's bitter tears as she watched her innocent baby boy, brutally killed...
Let's pray together: Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
