Marilyn Martone (LOC, St. John’s University, NY) wrote an article in 2005 which makes a very appropriate Lenten Reflection for us today. She writes:
“The Cross does not teach us how to escape suffering, but how to be faithful in the midst of suffering.”
“We know that there are things in our lives that we cannot fix, that we cannot overcome… Just as Mary stood by her son on the cross, we too are called to stand by each other.”
