Catholic Question & Answer 

 


JESUS MEETS HIS MOTHER

March 15, 2019  •   Tracy Earl Welliver

The Fourth Station of the Cross
Lent Challenge 4

How does a mother find the courage and strength to watch her child suffer and then be executed? Why should a mother ever be asked to do such a thing?

Our Lady was there throughout her son’s turmoil. They comforted each other the best they could on that road to Golgotha. It is hard to imagine the pain in her eyes seeing her only son in such distress. It is also hard to imagine the look on Jesus’ face when he saw his mother.

To give completely like a mother gives to her children is a profound gesture. Our Lady gave her entire self, even if it meant suffering unimaginable pain. Sometimes we are called to give until it hurts. But if we are to follow the example of Mary, we will respond regardless of the cost. And when we choose to give of ourselves so completely, Our Lady is there to console us and assist us on our journey.

PRAYER

Mary, Mother of God,
pray for me that I may have the strength to answer
God’s call like you.
May your consolation and care for me,
just like the love you had for your son,
be a source of strength in my daily journey with him.
Pray for me to be committed to Jesus like you were.
AMEN.

CITIZENS OF HEAVEN

March 15, 2019  •   Tracy Earl Welliver

Where do you live? I live in North Carolina. There, I own a home and belong to a parish. North Carolina is in the United States, so I also abide by federal laws, pay taxes, and vote for candidates in all sorts of elections. I identify as an American and try my best to meet certain expectations placed on me by the government, state, and fellow Americans. I do certain things because of my identity.

Paul wrote to the Philippians, “Our citizenship is in heaven.” Being a U.S. citizen living in North Carolina places certain requirements on me. How many of us “citizens of heaven” take seriously the expectations and requirements of that citizenship? Sometimes we act like nothing is truly required of us.

Stewardship as a way of life requires us to take seriously what it means to be a citizen of heaven. We are called to follow the laws of the land we live in on this earth, but we are called to adhere to an even greater authority. Whether it be our call to act with charity and love or to follow the precepts of the Church, we must take seriously our status as citizen.

Unfortunately, many don’t take seriously their citizenship on this earth either. People have given their very lives so that we may have to freedom to be citizens of our country and our state. Of course, many people have died for the citizenship of heaven as well. So it comes down to the question, who are you and to whom do you belong?
