Jesus, whose love took the shape of a cross:
in the hour of deepest agony
your mother and your beloved disciple
     did not flee,
but stood beside you.
You call us to pour out our lives in service
     to others,
yet the suffering of your people seems
     to have no end.
When we feel numb and helpless
     at the horror,
remind us of Mary, the unnamed women,
     And John—
who could not save you from death,
but did not leave you to face it alone.
Strengthen us in keeping vigil;
have mercy upon us all.
Amen.
