TEXT: Matthew 27
CHARACTER: Mary the Mother of Jesus
I think that one of the most painful experiences in this world is to lose a child; this is especially so for a mother. The feeling cannot be described, it is beyond words just like bringing life into the world.
When the angel Gabriel came to me and gave me the news that I would carry and bear The Christ it was a great surprise and honor. The day Joseph and I took Him to the temple and Simeon prophesied about the kind of life my Son would live I knew it would not be business as usual. And when he said that “…a sword will pierce your own soul too” (Luke 2:35) I knew that the life of my son would not end too well.
