4th Station – Jesus Meets His Blessed Mother

The following excerpts come from The Way of the Cross written by Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen and published by Our Sunday Visitor (1982).

JESUS MEETS HIS BLESSED MOTHER

“At the marriage feast of Cana, … His hour, He said, had ‘not yet come.’  But His hour was her hour too, and now it had come. … it was the hour in which the world’s idea of love was reversed — in which the Son summoned His mother to suffer.  Love, then, does not mean ‘to have’; it means ‘to be had.

…Mother of Mankind, just as in Bethlehem you became the Mother of Jesus … you are, then, really my mother, too.  Teach me, Mother, to see that Jesus calls to suffering those whom He loves.”
