Women of Jerusalem

EIGHTH STATION
Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem

The above photo is from St. Anne’s [tag]Catholic[/tag] [tag]Church[/tag] in Bukit Mertajam, [tag]Penang[/tag], [tag]Malaysia[/tag]. I added in the Gospel of Luke. If you like it, feel free to download the large pic (1024 x 679) and (2048 x 1358).

While googling for more information on the Wailing Wall, I stumbled on this page by the Vatican.va website. I am sure all [tag]mothers[/tag], and all children, irrespective of our faith will find this touching:

But the tears of the mothers of [tag]Jerusalem[/tag]
are but a small drop
in the river of tears shed by mothers:
mothers of the crucified, mothers of murderers,
mothers of drug addicts, mothers of terrorists,
mothers of rapists, mothers of psychopaths:
but mothers all the same!

Yet tears are not enough.
Tears must overflow into love that nurtures,
strength that gives direction, firmness that corrects,
dialogue that builds, a presence that speaks!

Tears must prevent other tears!

It was raining in St. Anne Church, BM so I didn’t manage to take photo of all the 14 stations of the cross. I must say that the church ground is divine.

This is The [tag]Pieta[/tag], depicting[tag] Jesus[/tag] in his Mother’s arm.

This famous work of art depicts the body of Jesus in the arms of his mother Mary after the Crucifixion. (Wiki)
