Family Reflection Video: Jesus, You Cried for Me

Family Reflection Video: Jesus, You Cried for Me

inspiration  |  sorrowful

It is difficult to imagine. Jesus cried. Jesus wept. Not tears of weakness but rather tears of compassion for you and me.

We know what makes for peace and we are called to be peacemakers. May compassion move us to weep as Jesus did and work for the peace that remains hidden from the eyes of so many. Jesus cried for you and me. Will we, moved by compassion, cry for others?
