13 – Jesus is taken down from the Cross.
Can I imagine what it would be like for a mother to see that of her son?
How could one bear it?
Will I have similar strength if I need it?
Is there a consolation that is offered to help us bear tragic circumstances in our lives?
Do I believe and trust you will help me?
Help me to know that your gifts surround me like you were enfolded in your mother’s arms.
Let us pray:
Lord, thank you for blessing me with your amazing grace and love, and offering me access to deep wisdom and surprising inner strength. You present me with comfort, and consolation. Here I am Lord, welcoming, embracing and embodying your gifts, filled with profound gratitude.
