The sign of faithfullness and hope

A child’s feelings can easily be hurt if his mother points at him and says „Because of you she cries”. Eventually, the child also begins to shed tears. Reaching teenage years, the child secretly withdraws up but then shows a face of control. Later, all grown up, the child moves away to avoid seeing a tearful face.

We Catholics present upon the wall of the Holy Basilika, the picture of our tearful Mother, and so we honor Her. Not because of self accusations, nor out of an ill case of conscience that makes us do such a thing, but we see the sign of righteousness and hope, that is present in this holy picture. The devotional picture is the instrument of mercy, which shows toward a sinful world that our salvation is important to Her. So important is this to Her that to Her Son, the Author of salvation, She is able to conciliate us with Her Bleeding Tears. We ask Her, our heavenly Mother, to appeal for us to Her Holy Son.
