Under the Cross

Raphael (c. 1503) "The Crucifixion with Sts Mary Virgin, Mary Magdalen, John and Jerome" (National Gallery, London)

We who suffer, we who are in anguish and anxiety, should stand with the Virgin Mary under the cross. Through her, we will find the courage to keep believing, and the strength to bear the burdens that tear our souls apart.

Catherine Doherty, from: God in the Nitty-Gritty Life
