The Seventh Sorrow
7. The burial of Jesus: “Now there was in the place where He was crucified, a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein no man yet had been laid. There, therefore, because of the parasceve of the Jews, they laid Jesus, because the sepulchre was nigh at hand.” John XIX, 41-
Dear Little hearts,
And so we come to the seventh and last sorrow, the laying in the tomb. A mystery that we can all identify with, for in the midst of life death is always with us.
The Battle is over Christ is laid to rest, the seed is laid within the ground…
One of the greatest lessons to learn in life is the dichotomy often on many levels of the difference between appearances and reality. That applies equally to this mystery, “nothing is ever quite like what it seems”…. this appears to human eyes to be the end , but it is in reality just the beginning. It seems like failure and the end of all…. it is but the prelude to the greatest overture and drama of LIFE… the Resurrection.
Hope in God we shall praise him still, we can never trust our God enough, even though he may lead us in strange and painful ways. HE IS LORD !
