    I was holding on, containing my grief, until Ryan Scheel kissed the feet of Christ on the crucifix, then the tears flowed. =( Your solemn reverence and inspired comments almost make me feel ashamed to ask Our Lady for anything. The 13th Station, the Pieta, was difficult enough to endure when I was a young woman. But now, as the mother of three sons all in their early twenties, the image burns with excruciating realism. Seeing you three men, offering a circle of perspective from that singular male perspective, was remarkably moving. Thank you. May God have mercy on us all, through the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Immaculate Heart of Mary, thank you for your fiat, for your Son. Amen.

    Thank you for this episode. How often do we take for granted Our Lord’s sacrifice! How often do we look at the Cross without acknowledging Christ’s pain and suffering! Thank you for reminding us of that and for helping us understand our faith better. God bless you all!

    Thank you for making us all focus and realize the amount of suffering Jesus went through on our behalf. It is however surreal on one level as the mind doesn’t want to take it all in. It rebels at the absolute horror of humans torturing and killing each other and enjoying it. I have avoided watching The Passion of the Christ, the Mel Gibson offering, for years. This year I watched it on Good Friday. I should say I cried through it.

    I hope you and yours are all well and weathering the pandemic. I ask for your prayers for a young mother who tested positive with mild symptoms.

    Thank you for sharing this again in 2021! Through the discussion Christ’s Crucifixion becomes so vivid . It helps me to realize on a different level just how much Christ suffered for my sins.
