We adore you O Christ, and we praise you.
Because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world.
After this, Joseph of Arimathea, who
was a disciple of Jesus - though a secret one because he was afraid of the Jews
- asked Pilate to let him remove the body of Jesus. Pilate gave permission, so
they came and took it away.
who pass by, look and see if there is any sorrow like my sorrow, which
was brought upon me ... Hear how I groan, there is none to comfort me.
My eyes are spent with weeping, my soul is troubled; my heart is
poured out in grief"
Lamentations 1:12, 1:21, 2:11
Your mother's grief is heart-rending when your life-less body is laid in her arms. I must also part from those I love and behold them as they lie in death or as they wave good-bye. Help me also to let go and thus to discover new life which will dawn. As Mary shared in your Passion, so I want to be united with you in all that I have to endure. And thus may a multitude of souls be brought to you.
I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for
you are beside me.
