THE INCOMPARABLE SORROW OF THE MOTHER OF GOD
Part 4 of 4 CS-129 6-Feb-98
St. John the Evangelist
Now I know these things, but then, saddened as I was,
I did not understand anything and reflected on nothing.
How many things can one hide by one’s tears alone,
and the Virgin Mary was indeed hiding an unlimited charity
in those moments,
from Calvary to the Tomb as She went forth
unique and alone in representation of all humanity.
She was crying and sighing, internally burning with pain,
but She was giving testimony and satisfaction for all to the Father.
A mission truly divine,
that of substituting oneself for the rest
and acting with one’s own charity in favor of the others.
The gait of the Virgin was grave.
Her steps very labored, but I sustained Her
and tried to show Her compassion with looks of understanding,
a natural understanding
because I could not fathom the ardor of that soul, of that Mother.
Once we had arrived at the Tomb,
the Body of Jesus was extended on the stone
and I, kissed His Face the first,
then the women followed by Joseph and Nicodemus.
Mary was the last one to kiss Jesus,
the last creature who kissed Him on earth,
as She was the first to kiss Him as a newborn.
This is the synthesis of the things that happened
after the death of Jesus, before His burial.
I am John, witness of Jesus and son of Mary.
With the Episcopal authority given me by Peter on earth
and even more so through the invitation from Her
whom I have described to you,
I raise my hands and bless you,
as well as those who like me, will join in
to express compassion and love to the Mother of all Sorrows.
