Is 50:4

The Lord GOD has given me a well-trained tongue, That I might know how to speak to the weary a word that will rouse them…

In Conversation with God:

Veronica responded to Christ’s love with reparation; a reparation especially admirable because it came from a helpless woman who ddi not fear the ire of the enemies of Christ…

A recently-arrived spectator to the scene would see three men, each laden with a cross, walking towards death. But only one is the Saviour of the world. Only one of the crosses is the redeeming Cross…

The Saviour walked, his body bowed down under the weight of the Cross, his eyes swollen and almost blinded by blood and sweat and tears…

In the dark loneliness of the Passion, Our Lady offers her Son a comforting balm of tenderness, of union, of faithfulness; a ‘yes’ to the divine will…

CCC #508

At once virgin and mother, Mary is the symbol and the most perfect realization of the Church: “the Church indeed. . . by receiving the word of God in faith becomes herself a mother. By preaching and Baptism she brings forth sons, who are conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of God, to a new and immortal life. She herself is a virgin, who keeps in its entirety and purity the faith she pledged to her spouse.”

… you’ve got you and your solitude allowing no more room for me, and you’re giving me the coldest stare to assist my sympathy, but oh, you’ve been so ruined with no sign of relief, so be a burden on me, you could put it down, go on, share your misery, there may be something in ‘we,’ a trace of brightness there that seclusion could not see, oh baby, be a burden on me… in the end i find i can’t contend with your self sufficiency, ’cause you let the echoes in your chest ring out soft and sparingly, but oh, you’ve grown so tired that maybe you’ll concede to be a burden on me, you could put it down, go on, share your misery, there may be something in ‘we,’ a trace of brightness there that seclusion could not see, oh baby, be a burden on me…
