“Woman, why do you weep, whom do you seek?”.
Today Jesus asks two questions:
1: “Why are you weeping?”
2: ” Who do you seek?”
And, from these questions, I also ask myself these questions:
+ What are the things that cause my weeping?
+ Are they cries for myself or are they cries for others?
+ Do I cry for my own sufferings or do I shed my tears for the sufferings of my brothers and sisters?
+ Is my weeping selfish or does my weeping come from seeing the needs around me?
+ Whom do I really seek?
+ Am I looking for Jesus or am I looking for myself?
+ In all that I do, do I seek my own interests, my own satisfactions, my own comforts… or do I always seek the good of others?
Like Mary Magdalene, may we always weep at the loss of Jesus and always seek him from the love that loses the one it loves.
Good day to you.
