Are We Weeping

“It seems to Me that you have forgotten that I already pronounced these words when I was carrying My Cross, and the holy women were weeping for Me more than for their own sins. Again, I ask pious souls to repent. Repent on behalf of others as well.” (Jesus) (November 10, 1964)

Readings: Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?
Whom are you looking for?”
She thought it was the gardener and said to him,
“Sir, if you carried him away,
tell me where you laid him,
and I will take him.”
Jesus said to her, “Mary!”
She turned and said to him in Hebrew, “Rabbouni,” (John 20)

Prayer Meditation- Lord it is easy in these times to feel a bit like Mary Magdalene. Deprived of public Masses and Sacraments still in some areas, we weep and we wonder where You have gone and why have You been taken away! In truth, a lot of this weeping can become a real pity party if we let it. Like the Magdalene, we do not recognize You even though You have never left us and if we listen closely enough, we will be able to hear You softly call our name. Lord, today, fill us with Your Peace and Your Presence which You never deny to anyone who calls to You in faith and let us turn to You and contemplate You truly alive! Alive in our lives and in our world right now. Jesus may we use these times to grow closer to You, rid us of what does not belong to You, as we offer our prayers for the salvation of souls!
