My Jesus, I am amazed at Your compassion for others in Your time of need.
When I suffer, I have a tendency to think only of myself but You forgot Yourself completely.
When You saw the holy women weeping over Your torments, You consoled them and taught them to look deeper into Your Passion.
You wanted them to understand that the real evil to cry over was the rejection You suffered from the Chosen people – a people set apart from every other nation, who refused to accept God’s Son.
The Act of Redemption would go on and no one would ever be able to take away Your dignity as Son of God, but the evil, greed, jealousy and ambition in the hearts of those who should have recognized You was the issue to grieve over.
