"Father Henry Nowlin wrote a book called The Wounded Healer. Each of us has wounds. And when those wounds heal, we have a capacity to heal the wounds of those same wounds that we carry. And so each of us is healing one another through the wounds of Jesus Christ. We each carry wounds. And Mary was the one who is so compassionate to each of us. I particularly think of those whose wounds were mainly caused by an earthly mother who didn't love them. Some of us who come to this feast day, maybe your mother was cruel. Maybe she wasn't ready to welcome you. Maybe she thought you were just the worst of her children or rejected you. Or you still have wounds. And there principally might be mother wounds. And whatever that might have been that prevented her from giving you a mother's love. Today you do have a mother who sees the wounds that you have carried and wants you to come to her so that she, in her immaculate heart, can give you her love, her tenderness. There were 14 stanzas to this hymn at the cross, her station, keeping stood the mournful mother weeping close to Jesus to the last. And on and on it goes, commending Mary for the love that she has for you and me. Can you believe this great truth?

You see, when Jesus was on the cross and he was dying, this is true. I've heard it confirmed. In the battlefield, when soldiers are dying, there's that crying out, Mom, Mom, soldiers weep for their mother, and they're dying and they're weeping. And so it was with Jesus who was dying. And instead of calling for his mother to be with him, he gave his mother to you and to me when he said to John in the scripture, in the 19th chapter of St. John's Gospel, Woman, behold your child. He was saying that to you. Behold your daughter. So if you have been going through a suffering and a pain, Mary is reaching out to you. When my sister was dying, I remember I brought the news to her. She didn't realize that she was dying from leukemia, and she was 18 years old. And I remember having to tell her, and I looked up as I was telling my sister that she was going to die, and I saw my mother's face, the love and compassion in my mother's face. I saw Mary. You see, each of us has this opportunity to unite our hearts with those we love. Who hasn't had that opportunity? When you receive the cross and the suffering of your life, no matter how small or simple it is, to come to Our Lady and to share it with her immaculate heart, you are her son. And when you hurt, she compassionate with you. Her heart is pained by your suffering because of her love for you. In her eyes, you are Jesus. And every wound that you carry, she receives in her heart. I would recommend so strongly that you pray the daily rosary and bring to her your aches, your pains, your sufferings, your sharing, because what you're doing in your body is suffering the pains of Jesus. And what she's doing with her immaculate heart is sharing in those sufferings that you're going through. And when you become more and more like your mother, then when you see others suffer, you have a heart like hers, and you can compassionate with the suffering and the pain in your daily life. So give each other the opportunity to be Mary to one another, or to be Jesus to one another. And that's a magnificent lesson that we learned from these two days of the cross of Jesus and the sorrows of Mary, which is really a powerful lesson. It's very, very powerful. I mean, she truly felt pain. I mean, it's not as though she sometimes I think we think of Mary as a pious figure way up there, who somehow was experienced a great comfort because she was with Jesus. And yet, because she was with him, she suffered even that deep, deep penetrating pain that we may never experience, the kind of depth of pain that she has suffered in her heart. Because of the love. Yeah. Have you noticed that in Mary's visits to the earth, whether they be at Lourdes, or at Fatima, or at Guadalupe, or wherever she comes, her heart is so loving toward us, or her children. All I see at Lourdes is compassion. If any of us is sick, that's listening to this. What a beautiful mother you have with your cancer, with your heart trouble, with your arthritic pain, with your winding up in a wheelchair. You know, the image of all those crutches being left at Lourdes. Come to this compassionate mother and have the expectation that she not only will share your suffering, but wants to heal them. Her message, especially at Guadalupe, to us through Juan Diego, don't you know I'm your mother? What is there that you need? And again, when she appeared to St. Bernadette, Subaru, it's a constant assurance. Come to me. I will assist you with the miraculous medal, with your scapular. Mary is our mother. Through that devotion that you may have, especially I would encourage you to have the rosary. This morning, very early, I got up at four o'clock today and I watched our Holy Father in Lebanon. I had been praying for him with all the agitation in the Middle East. What was his message? Peace. He reached out to the Muslims, to the Christians, to all ranges of people. In Lebanon is a whole range of humanity there. He gave them this marvelous formula to live, love, and to promote peace. When your televisions today are so inflamed with protest, violence, killing four of our Americans dead in the Embassy of Libya, and people talking about revenge and all the kinds of retaliation, what was the message he gave? Right smack in the middle of what we say, peace. Pray for peace. And especially today, while our Holy Father is in the midst of this conflagration in the Middle East, ask Our Lady the power of her love when she looks down and sees the world about to explode in another warfare. This time a nuclear exchange is possible. Pray. Ask Our Lady her compassion for us and her awareness of those four families of our Ambassador and three of our soldiers who were killed. But she sees so much more that she wants to prevent. And this son of hers, Benedict XVI, at this particular time, on this particular feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, is seeing the suffering of her son and is seeing also the sorrow and potential if we don't find peace. And so she is a magnificent mother and so compassionate. What a marvelous time this can be. And what a wonderful day this feast of Our Lady of Sorrows. It's really a feast of hope, isn't it? Yes, yes. And wherever she is, there's such great hope. We don't have to give in to despair. And when Jesus was dead and buried, what was in Mary's heart as she kept the apostles together? They were in despair. But Mary, in her heart, was hope. And no one had ever risen from the dead. No one had ever come back from the grave. And the triumph was about to happen. But it wasn't Easter. Easter was joy and celebration of the risen Lord. But Saturday, when Mary was waiting at the tomb, was a day of hope. Her Immaculate Heart, with her dead son, and the bruises and the bleeding that he brought the Church in the deepest, darkest time. Hope. And she gathered those apostles and they waited for his resurrection. And he did rise. And so we celebrate, not only yesterday, we celebrate the glory of the cross. He conquered death by rising from the dead. And Mary conquered sorrow by hope. That all of us, eventually, will rise over every sorrow and suffering. When I go to this wedding today, that's really what we're celebrating. The joy in that groom's face. The joy in that bride. After death comes hope. After your sorrow, no matter what it be. Any final thoughts, Monsignor? On the other side, our sorrow will be turned into joy. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for our sinners now and at the hour of death. Amen. And it's amazing what we ask Mary to do in that beautiful prayer that we have, the Hail Holy Queen. Show unto us the fruit of thy womb, Jesus, after our exile here. And that's really what's waiting for us all. An eternity of union with God. When we've been there 10,000 years, bright shining as the sun, we've no less days to sing God's praise than when we first begun. We are an Easter people. Good Friday was not the end of the story. Easter is truly the end of the story. Although we all, make no mistake, have to go through Good Friday to get to Easter. God bless and have a wonderful day. And if you feel us worthy, consider a charitable donation, which is fully tax deductible to help support our efforts. But most of all, we hope that you will tell a friend about discerninghearts.com and join us next time for Building the Kingdom of Love. Reflections with Monsignor John Essif.

"Sometimes that divine assistance came in the form of a favor she received in prayer. She asked for grace and she received the grace in prayer. Sometimes it came through good spiritual friends, sometimes it came through a confessor or spiritual director, and sometimes, and quite often in her life, it came through some external difficulty, whether it was bodily sickness or just really adverse persecution and rejection from those that she was counting on or be even betrayal. And all these things, she came to see that the Lord was using them to draw her closer to Him. And so she wants her sisters to live that same way of life that will dispose them to a deeper encounter with Him and that's really what this work that we're going to be looking at is geared towards. Yeah, I'm glad you brought up her sufferings, those issues that would occur in her body, primarily that she writes about in the life so vividly, the degree of pain in some ways, these ailments. And it reminds me so much of, you know, those moments, whether it was Francis of Assisi or Jemek Alghani or, I mean, the list goes on and on, Bernadette Subaru, Ignatius suffering, God will allow that in a way so that the soul cries out, they're more open to receiving his assistance. That's right, you know, I think that's true. I think that's what sometimes happens in our lives, that there are certain graces the Lord wants to give us, but because we're either self -satisfied or we don't realize how much we need Him, in order to avail our hearts or open our hearts to Him in the way He needs our hearts to be open, He permits us to be afflicted with really difficult things. In fact, that part of the way of perfection is helping the sisters be faithful in their dedication to the Lord in the midst of great suffering and affliction and even uncertainty. When she's writing this, her communities are sometimes being, they have to lock the doors, the people are trying to barge in

"Defend it properly understood inculturation. That's always been a part of the church history that right. Oh yeah sure. I mean there is a. There's definitely a proper inculturation and Is definitely an improper inculturation. So we can't we can't help the tray and right. I mean that's where you live but we can culture eight We have to inculturated the faith when the blessed virgin. Mary appeared to Let's see it was let's see who was at the miraculous medal that would be saint catherine la beret when he appears take an elaborate. She showed herself as a little trust. Like a then contemporary french lady. She had curls that came down the side of her head. Such as fashionable women had in paris in those days Our lady appears to Honda go looking like an aztec girl So if if inculturation is okay for heaven You know when our lady appeared to to Saint bernadette subaru in lords. She looked like a french girl. Exactly the age of bernadette burned that protested that none of these statues that were created. Looked like the way our lady to her. So if it's good enough for heaven to Our lady in these different places so that she looks familiar to these people then. it's it's it should be good enough for the church as well Let me point out that Our religion is not like islam. Islam to to in order to understand islam You have to learn arabic and you have to read the koran in arabic. Now i'm that saying that. You shouldn't learn greek or latin through to read I'm not saying that. I'm not against the those studies. Obviously but you don't have to learn Greek to be a christian. You're not to learn greek to be a catholic to be able to read the new testament in the language of inspiration. Not and it's not simply because they're they're translations available unlike islam which is very fixed in the culture that produced and sustain the catholic church is was from day one diverse culturally the at first it's this semitic religion with semitic languages and semitic Customs attached to it then very very quickly it becomes greco roman but as it spreads out to different parts it very quickly becomes a byzantine roman in the city of rome so we have the roman right with its sort of austere Very latin western pageantry But taking on a whole different character in in the byzantine church by basically emulating a lot of the byzantine court ritual. It's different yet. Ethiopia where saint athas sends from anxious to evangelize and It takes on different languages. The coptic language Is is that's egypt the as language which theo paeans used so there are different liturgical traditions. There in this gives us all these beautiful various ancient traditional rites of the church but these are all expressions of some sort of inculturation. You know we're not going to get in some sort of fight. I'm going to see some. You shouldn't see some sienese artists of the middle ages. Finding with some greek ours of the middle ages finding over whether the blessed virgin. Mary looked like she was cnn. Or greek Or you know. Throw throw any body into the mix. The slavs are obviously going to show the blessed virgin looking like a slav The the the irish of course you know..
