In his life and parables, Jesus offers us an image of God that constantly demands that we allow our myths to be shattered and that we give up notions that would try to limit God’s freedom. He shows us a compassionate God who became one of us, and suffered with the poor and oppressed.
Can the human heart refrain?
From partaking in her pain,
In that Mother’s pain untold?
May Mary be Our Guide and Example of Courage in Lent.
