Mary meets Jesus on His way to Calvary
And there followed him a great multitude
of people, and of women, who bewailed and
lamented him. But Jesus turning to them, said:
"Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not over
me; but weep for yourselves, and for
your children. For behold, the days
shall come, wherein they will say:
Blessed are the barren, and the wombs
that have not borne, and the paps that
have not given suck. Then shall they
begin to say to the mountains: Fall
upon us; and to the hills: Cover us.
For if in the green wood they do these things,
what shall be done in the dry?"
Pray one Our Father and 7 Hail Marys after meditating on the Dolor
"Come a little further with Me....
There you will see My blessed Mother,
whose heart is pierced with grief. She
comes to meet Me, and for two reasons:
that seeing Me, her God, she may have
fortitude to endure, and then to give Me,
her Son, courage to carry on and complete
the work of Redemption helped by the sight
of her heroism. Consider the martyrdom of
these two hearts. What does this Mother love
more than her Son?...And far from being able
to help Him, she knows that the sight of her
anguish increases His. And I, what do I love
more than My Mother? Not only can I offer her
no comfort, but I know that the terrible plight
in which she sees Me pierces her heart with a
sorrow like My own; for if I suffer death in the
body, she suffers death in her heart. See those
eyes fixed on Mine, as Mine, dulled and blinded
with blood are fixed on hers! No word is spoken,
but what a world of unity our two hearts
exchange in one heart-rending glance...."
Revealed by Jesus Christ to Sister Josefa Menendez,
(a Spanish nun in the 1920ís)
Revealed by Mary to Saint Bridget of Sweden when she went
with Saint John to see her Divine Son, carrying His Cross.
V. Incline unto my aid, O God!
R. O Lord, make haste to help me!
Pray Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit as it was in the beginning is
now and ever shall be world without end, Amen
I am compassionate to thee, O sorrowful Mother Mary, on account of that horror with which thy
motherís heart was stricken when meeting Jesus, bearing the Cross. O dearest Mother, through this thy
exceedingly oppressed heart, implore for me the Virtue of Patience and the Gift of Fortitude.
Pray one Hail Mary
