Some people are either hostile toward Jesus or do not understand Him at all. Both His Cross and His Glory seem to be incomprehensible to them, so-called "all-knowing" men.
In the past, however, neither the Blessed Virgin Mary nor Our Lord's disciples treated Him and His redemptive Mission in this way.
Despite of the blasphemous voices such as: "Why won't You get down from your Cross", and "He is not risen, this could not be the case, even if somebody says so" there was unceasing hope in Mary and followers of Jesus. They knew well that any pain or unbelievable surprise may be accepted with trust if only
experienced in closeness to the Messiah, the One who -- no matter of what -- was, still is, and always will be the Ultimate Reason, Hope, and Strength for us all.
PS. Thanks for your prayers - they are very helpful, appreciated, and...still needed!
