I find no greater peace than walking my dogs before the dawn and praying the Rosary. Today, as I entered into the imagery of Jesus carrying his cross, I was further silenced in the symbolism of the cross and its shape of a “t“. As I surrendered to the last mystery of his crucifixion, a horror and beauty only G-d could hold, I was given this question:
Was Jesus nailed to :
* the poor,
* they who mourn,
* the meek,
* they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
* the merciful,
* the pure of heart,
* the peacemakers,
* they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness?
Shouldn’t each plight of the latter be considered?
Who are these people? …before you answer that consider the following quote:
“I really only love God as much as I love the person I love the least.”
– Dorothy Day
