Reflection for Friday September 15, Our Lady of Sorrows: John 19:25-27

Gospel: John 19:25-27
Standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 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." And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

Reflection:
Have you felt sorrow in your life? The Blessed Mother felt it deep in her immaculate heart. It started when Simeon told her that her son will be a sign of contradiction and her soul would be pierced by a sword (Luke 1:34-35). Then it culminated to the point where we are now in our gospel.

We cannot fathom how the Blessed Mother felt during that time when she was at the foot of the cross looking-up to her badly bruised and dying son Jesus. Nonetheless, even if she was deep in her sorrow she still found courage and strength in her son. For she obeyed what Jesus told her that from thereon she would treat John her son that’s why she went to the house of John and stayed there.

Do you always find strength and courage in Jesus especially during the sorrowful moments of your life? Do you always ask the Blessed Mother to pray for you to make your faith in Jesus as strong as hers?

Prayer:
Lord Jesus in the midst of our sorrows, trials and sufferings we pray to you to give us the strength and courage to face whatever sorrows we may go through. Give us the same strength and courage that you gave the Blessed Mother when she was sorrowfully looking up to you at the foot of the cross.

Please continue to strengthen us Dear Lord Jesus, give us the gift to trust you more than we trust ourselves. Most Blessed Virgin Mary we humbly ask you to pray for us. Amen. - Marino J. Dasmarinas
