Saturday of Our Lady

Consider the sighs which burst from Mary's sad heart when she saw her beloved Jesus laid within the tomb. What grief was hers when she saw the stone lifted to cover that sacred tomb! She gazed for the last time on that lifeless body of her Son, and could scarcely detach  her eyes from those gaping wounds. And  when the great stone was rolled to  the door of the sepulchure , oh, then, indeed, her heart seemed torn from her body.

Peace be with you!
Rosemarie, ocds
