Stations of the Cross 2021 by Fr Brian Kealey – 4

 

The Fourth Station

Jesus meets his mother

 

We adore thee Oh Christ and we praise thee

Because by thy holy cross thou hast redeemed the world

 

First Voice

Look now from this place

Beyond the soft romance and presentation

Through centuries of confusion

Past our needs

Past our fears

To this powerful woman

Prepared to suffer

And in real pain

Second Voice

To see from such a distance

From prayer to conception

From birth and the innocent love in Nazareth

To this confrontation

This sharing and letting go

As I too must share

And let go.

I love you Jesus

My love above all things

I regret with my whole heart of having offended thee

Never permit me to separate myself from thee again

Grant that I may love thee always and then do with me what thou will
