O Blessed Mother,
O Lady of Consolation,
be with us
when the moments seem so dark,
and the anger builds
and we want to do
what we cannot do.
O Mary,
You too know what it is like,
to see your beloved
tortured,
beaten,
murdered
without being able to do more
than wait,
pray,
and give it all to the Father.
When our heart breaks,
intercede for us
that we too
will have the patience to wait for the Lord's time,
the grace to bear the load we are given,
and the ability to give him our resounding YES.

Amen.

I don't want to be here, God.
I don't want to deal
with the things you have sent my way,
and I am sooo tired,
tired of the strain,
tired of the pain,
tired.

O Jesus,
in the garden
how tired were you,
dealing with the things the Father
had send your way,
betrayed,
misunderstood,
and now here at this moment,
to be the sacrifice
for all our sins.

O Jesus,
Lord and master,
who dealt with all my sins,
all the wrongs I have done
and are done to me,
Lord give me strength
to do the Father's will,
and like you,
may I always say yes,
even as I long to be far away.

O dear Mother Mary,
as you watched them drag your son
through the streets,
so tired,
so hurt,
so worn,
did you not want to be there,
did you not want to wake up
and find it all a nightmare?

O pray for me, Holy Mother of God,
that I might bear the cross
selected for me
with more acceptance,
even as I long to run anywhere else,
knowing that
our Father
knows well what he is doing,
and being in his hands
is the only true refuge.
