THE INCOMPARABLE SORROW OF THE MOTHER OF GOD

Part 3 of 4 CS-129 6-Feb-98

St. John the Evangelist

12

Aided by Nicodemus, Joseph was preparing to embalm Jesus

but before they started to bind Him with the wraps

impregnated with fragrances,

the Virgin Mary said:

“I ask you for only one moment.

Let Me look at My Son, because I have to compensate Him

even from now on for all the guilty indifferences

of those who will remain cold and insensitive at the thought of Jesus.”

13

Because of this wish of the Mother of Jesus,

with my aid and that of Nicodemus,

He was placed on Her bosom as best as we could.

The other two women continued crying and kissing the feet of Jesus.

Mary at the utmost of Her pain

burst out in a shout

that was later revealed

to have been the loud cry of Her offering to God.

14

It was late.

The Sabbath was about to begin,

so the embalming had to be hastened

so that Jesus could be buried before sunset.

15

A moving scene of which I was but such a small part

in comparison to Mary’s sorrow

that I desire not to even say my feelings,

but I was suffering intensely.

16

After having been bound with the strip-wraps,

Jesus was wrapped in the sheet and carried toward the tomb.

17

You have heard that the words of Mary ever Virgin,

immediately after this, had the flavor of prophecy;

this was completely unexpected for us.

Yet during the walk from Calvary to the Tomb,

Mary changed Her feelings, or better,

She felt only the rending of a Mother who loses Her worshipped Son,

Her treasure, the most precious and desired.

18

The others and I had been rendered completely silent.

Only Mary could be heard, crying sorrowfully

without holding back Her tears.

One alone was the Creature

whom God granted to accompany Jesus to the Tomb

releasing the sorrowful song of Her wounded Heart

because all the others were to remain silent

before so much gentleness and so much sorrow together.
