4. Jesus encounters his mother – a reflection presented by @vahva for #easterjourneys

Jesus turns a corner with the crowds all pressing around him, in his pain and grief he looks through his hair, matted with blood and glimpses in front of him his own mother. Where all the rest of his friends appear to have deserted him, there faithfully, stoically, is his dear mother. Mary sees her beloved son and recalls the words Simeon spoke to her all those years ago in the temple:

and a sword will pierce through your own soul also

– (Luke 2:35)
