Mary, Mother of God

“Were you there when they crucified my son?” Mary, Mother of God, walks alongside her son weeping and wearily falls to the ground at his feet. There is no deeper grief than this. As Jesus peers down, he brings forth new community at the foot of the cross preparing all of us for the community that comes through the Kingdom of God. One where we are held together in our grief, and bound by love through our hope. May we all proclaim a weary, yet wonderful, “Hosanna in the highest.”
