Today we walk with our Lord in His Passion. We watch, we try to remain close, we are sorrowful for the innumerable times we have strayed by our sins.
At the Holy Scourging, as Christ’s sacred Flesh is torn, He moans and groans, in the intimacy of his Heart He cries your name, and mine.
And so on the Cross, as He struggles to breathe, as He looks up to the Father, hear Him cry your name and hear Him say “I love you,” from the depth of His Heart about to be pierced. Remain there as He gives up His last breath. Tell Him you love Him. Promise to sin no more.
Lamentations of Jeremiah sung by a former seminarian friend of mine and his family. We entered the FSSP together.
