With Pilate's permission, Joseph of Arimathea arranges for Jesus' body
to be removed from the cross. Jesus' body, limp and lifeless, is
placed in the arms of his Mother.
Imagine cradling your own dead child in your arms. A parent's own
death would seem less painful.
At yet, in many parts of our world today, parents hold and bury their
dead children. They're children killed for political and religious
reasons, children caught between warring factions, sometimes victims in
the wrong place at the wrong time.
Their parents hold their lifeless bodies and mourn, unable to be consoled,
because a child, the fruit of their own body, is dead.
God forgive us. Grant us the grace to see death, even the death of an
innocent child, through the eyes of faith. Help us remember that in your
eyes we're all children whom you wan to hold in your loving embrace
now and forever.
