JESUS MEETS

THE WOMEN OF JERUSALEM

 

We adore you, O Christ,

and we bless you

Because by your holy cross

you have redeemed the world.

 

FROM SACRED SCRIPTURE

Gospel of Luke 2:28-31

But Jesus turned to them and said,

“Daughters of Jerusalem,

do not weep for me; 

but weep for yourselves

and for your children. 

For behold, the days are coming

when they will say,

‘Blessed are the barren, 

the wombs that never bore 

and the breasts that never nursed’

Then they will begin to say

to the mountains, 

‘Fall on us’;

and to the hills, ‘Cover us.’

For if they do this

when the wood is green 

what will happen when it is dry?”

Let us contemplate Jesus

remembering the words

of Psalm 34 

as he meets the women

of Jerusalem.

The eyes of the Lord 

are toward the righteous,

and his ears toward their cry.

When the righteous cry for help,

the Lord hears,

and delivers them out 

of all their troubles.

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted,

and saves the crushed in spirit.

Many are the afflictions 

of the righteous;

but the Lord delivers him

out of them all.

He keeps all his bones;

not one of them is broken.

The Lord redeems 

the life of his servant,

None of those who take refuge

in Him will be condemned.

- Psalm 34:15, 17-18, 19-20, 22

 

HYMN

Let me share with thee His pain,

who for all my sins was slain,

who for me in torments died.
