Monday of Holy Week
Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem - this is Pope John Paul II's Scriptural Way of the Cross and is his Station IX
-A large crowd, held by curiosity
-A group of women offer relief
-Is his Mother in this group?
-Jesus sees the women, speaks
"Daughters of Jerusalem do not weep for me.
Weep for yourselves - your city is doomed.
If this is the green wood what to the dry?"
-If Jesus the innocent suffers so much, what will be the judgment on the guilty?
Let us beg fulfillment in our being as People of Communion, People of Contemplation, People of Reconciliation,
therefore grant unto us
-a heart that remembers
-a heart that is faithful
-a heart that is grateful
-a heart that truly loves
