Sorrowful Mysteries: Carrying of the Cross (Spanish Community)
Mk 8:34-35 “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and that of the gospel will save it”
Jesus was surely a man of sorrows. But, in carrying this cross of shame, he was really on the road to glory. His day of suffering would pass, and Jesus would end up on a throne of glory. In the words of the Apostles’ Creed, “He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead.” Jesus, we thank you for showing us the path to glory!
For all who are on the frontlines of this COVID-19 pandemic, especially our health care workers and first responders, for all who are unable to stay at home, but must work to provide for their families, may God continue to protect them and keep them in good health.
