Why Mary's Tears Matter
September 15, 2019
Christ did not leave Mary alone to her tears. He conquered death and ascended into heaven. Mary’s tears were transformed into joy in the dawn of the resurrection. In the same manner, all our tears are cherished by God. All our losses are witnessed in heaven, and our sadness here will turn to joy there. Mary’s tears will forever remind us that our tears are not forgotten. We too will be gathered up to paradise, where there will be no more weeping, and no more sorrow.
