We adore you, O Christ and we praise You, because by Your Holy Cross, you have redeemed the world.
This meeting of Jesus and His Mother should deepen our faith and arouse our conscience. Ever since the prophecy of Simeon in the temple, “A sword of sorrow shall pierce your soul,” Mary had a forboding of this most tragic moment of her life.
Reflection: We want to pray, Lord, for those women who in a tragic moment of their life, turned to abortion as the only way out, resulting in physical suffering and the burden of moral guilt.
Prayer: Have mercy on us O Lord, have mercy on us!
