Sorrow #3

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


About sisterbernice

I am a practicing Catholic in love with the Lord. Whatever his failings, I recognize the same in our Pope Emeritus, Benedict XVI. He serves as one of my great teachers. A truly misunderstood figure, I hope all who have reviled him might actually read him and find their way to God.
