There’s a prayer I pray daily with a line in it that took me a long time to begin to understand: Passion of Christ, my comfort be. My logic was that the passion of the Lord was a sad event where Jesus was crushed because of my sins. I didn’t see the comfort in knowing that I was responsible for his suffering. Perhaps some people think that way about today’s memorial: Our Lady of Sorrows. After all, it’s the story of a Mother that suffered her entire motherhood in deep ways. Yet, it brings solace to many.
