Jesus does not die without ensuring that his mother is cared for following his last breath. His act of completely compassionate love should not be lost on us. Sometimes we think that love only happens in the best of times. Perhaps the greatest acts of love happen under traumatic circumstances. SImple acts of kindness are possible when two people like or care for one another. What does it mean to offer love beyond mortal death. How does God's providence happen in such places - if not especially so.
This podcast episode seeks to unravel some of these questions along with articulating the truly gut wrenching acts of kindness we witness between Mary, Jesus, and John the Beloved Disciple.
There are audio segments of the podcast that are 1 or 4 minutes in length offering time for reflection, meditation, and other contemplative practices. Enjoy and may your soul be enriched.
