The Fourth Station

Jesus Meets His Mother

“When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple there whom he loved, he said to his mother, ‘Woman, behold, your son.’ Then he said to the disciple, ‘Behold, your mother’” (John 19:26-27).

The film shows Mary’s concern for Christ -- both as a child and as an adult. What great sorrow she feels at the suffering inflicted on her son!

But it’s my sins that Christ is suffering for. It’s my guilt that he carries. Do I count myself among those who caused Mary this great sorrow?

Pray this prayer from your heart: Lord Jesus, thank you for making your mother my mother, too -- I take comfort in my trials when she tells me, “I’m here.” Amen.

Pray one of each prayer: Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
