Lenten Journey Through the Sorrows of Mary: She remained beside Jesus

March 12
“The Virgin Mary, who believed in the word of the Lord, did not lose her faith
in God when she saw her Son rejected, abused and crucified. Rather
she remained beside Jesus, suffering and praying, until the end. And she
saw the radiant dawn of His Resurrection. Let us learn from her to witness
to our faith with a life of humble service, ready to personally pay the price
of staying faithful to the Gospel of love and truth, certain that nothing that
we do will be lost.”
- Pope Benedict XVI
For Reflection:
In what way do these words of the Holy Father speak to you today? Are we willing to face the moments of our life, from this second forward in persona Maria? How have Mary’s dolors encouraged you and strengthened you to do so?
