What profound thing has occurred in my Life that has caused me to relate to others grief, pain or suffering?



"If we knew the value of suffering, we would never give it up."

~St. Padre Pio



I use challenging experiences to improve my character and strength my spirit.


For a more enriching experience, go down on your knees to pray
or take it one step further and prostrate yourself
(lay face down) on the floor while praying.

Father, today's reading is so powerful. In midst of Jesus's own suffering and grief, He did not forget His mother's suffering and grief. All too often when we are in our own grief or suffering, we forget that others are grieving and suffering right along there with us. It is easy to overlook this when we are caught up in our own stuff and forget how our issues and circumstances impact the lives of other's. This reading shows us how Jesus did not forget His mother. In fact, He entrusted her care to John, just as He entrusted John's care to her. He was essentially saying, "I will no longer be with you (physically) and you need to take care of each other." John and Mary were going through this horrific situation together and could relate to each other's pain and sorrow. Thank You Father for this profound awareness of how important it is to reach out to other's who are going through the same thing I am to make that connection. I do have family beyond the family I was born in to and I thank You for the circumstances that brought me to that point. Thank You!

Through Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face, Amen.


A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John

John 19:25-27

25 Standing by the cross of Jesus were His mother and His mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala.

26 When Jesus saw His mother and the disciple there whom He Loved, He said to His mother, "Woman, behold, your son."

27 Then He said to the disciple, "Behold, your mother." And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.
