 "Love is as strong as death" (The Song of Songs 8.6)

We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You.  Because by Your Holy Cross, You have brought new life to the world.

Christ's Life

Your mother sees you whipped, kicked and driven like a beast.  She counts your wounds.  Though her soul cries out in agony, no protest or complaint escapes her lips, or even enters her thoughts.  She shares your martyrdom and you share her pain.  This is the meaning of love.  Your mother who asked the question, "My child, why have you done this to us?"  knows that true love is painful.
Our Lives

To watch the pain of those whom we love is sometimes harder than to bear our own.  How much must be the Father's pain to see the increasing dehumanisation and sufferings of God's family today?  "We know that that the future of humanity passes through the family".  Our homes and our families, the domestic church have to become the first schools for discovering the meaning of true Christian love.   We also know that there can be no true love without the cross.

My Prayer

Lord, I pray that you will give me the  strength each day to listen more closely to all the members of my family and to help become a channel of peace and reconciliation.  Teach me to reach out with a compassionate heart.  May my family also reach out in love to other families.
