We know quite well what Jesus was saying, but somehow, we forget. He was showing us that loving is inseparable from service, and that we must not stand on our dignity but must humble ourselves and do menial, earthy, bodily tasks for our brothers and sisters.
Is there one who would not weep,
Whelmed in miseries so deep,
Christ’s dear Mother to behold?
May Mary be Our Guide and Example of Courage in Lent.
