living holy week…accepting the good thief with the bad.
forgiving others, for they know not what they do,
remaining silent while others may mock you;
while placing one foot, then the other, on the way of the cross.
weeping with the women , wiping the brow, and willingly coming out from the shadows (of the crowd) to carry, if only for a little while, a piece of the cross…nay, though it be but a sliver.
mary, strengthen us, by the heel of your foot.
