STATION NINE

Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem

“they were mourning and wailing for him...”

We give thanks for those who keep vigil with the suffering

A huge crowd of people followed Jesus, including women, who were mourning and wailing for him. Jesus turned to the women and said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, don’t cry for me. Rather, cry for yourselves and your children. The time will come when they will say, ‘Happy are those who are unable to become pregnant, the wombs that never gave birth, and the breasts that never nursed a child.’ Then they will say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us,’ and to the hills, ‘Cover us.’ If they do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?”

                                       - Luke 23: 27-31

Expressions of grief and mourning are much more

demonstrative in some cultures than

others. The women whose weeping and wailing accompanied Jesus’ march to the

cross offered him an opportunity for his own lament and despair. At this station, we find the

Jesus who proclaims his sorrow about the state of the world and its people and we pray for all those humanitarians and activists who walk alongside, keep vigil with, keep proclaiming and keep before us the suffering of the world.
