Stations of the Cross – A Sharing by Fr Jovita Ho

All mothers would attest to the inexplicable and irreplaceable bond that is shared between a mother and her child, and whose heart aches at the sight of her child undergoing any kind of trial or suffering. This couldn’t be more true for our dear Mother, who shared one heart and mind with her son. She, who submitted to the direction of the Holy Spirit to bear Jesus, also helplessly watched her own child go through innocent suffering.

Fr Jovita talks about his realisation of the intimacy shared between Jesus and His Mother.

Her eyes met His eyes, two lives intertwined, two hearts speaking to one another. No words spoken, tears shed. Yet behold, Mother and Son.

Fr Jovita shares that in the devotion of the Stations of the Cross, it is the one in which Jesus meets His Mother on the way to Calvary that speaks to him the most. As he contemplates on this particular station, he realises the depth of intimacy shared between Mother and Son.
