I am thankful my stitches are out but my typing is limited. My thoughts are limited too. So much more could be said or written about the first two sorrows. Here I am at the third and I am sure that others have said more profound and insightful things. This one is my favorite though. I can imagine Mary’s terror – your child is missing. Terror. pure terror. If we take the unspoken truth of the first two sorrows that Mary has been given a great responsibility to raise the Son of God – triple the terror. Someone might now say – well she had faith and that faith means don’t worry. Jesus wondered about her mistrust too. But she was a mom, her child was missing – terror. I believe Mary understands all of our terrors. She has lived them all. She has suffered. I place my trust in her that she will understand me and my prayers. I place my trust that she will pray with me. I trust she will help us all go through the terror to find Jesus.
Mary, Most Holy Pray for Us
