Lenten Journey Through the Sorrows of Mary: Breathe his very last

March 19
Solemnity of Saint Joseph, husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Christ she saw with life-blood failing,
All her anguish unavailing,
Saw him breathe his very last.
For Reflection:
With Jesus, Mary had sojourned the agonizing road to Calvary. She had watched Him be beaten and tormented, ridiculed and spat upon. She had watched Him fall. And get up. Fall. And get up. Fall. And get up. She had watched nine inch nails pierce His hands and feet. She had seen Him hoisted into the air on a cross. And now she watches Him take His last breath as His life’s blood runs out. The soldier’s lance pierces them both. In light of this verse and meditation, read John 3:16. Substitute your name for “the world.” Sit with this truth and let it take hold of you. Journal your insights and reflections.
