A faithful reader reminded me these videos of the Way of the Cross at the Order of Discalced Carmelite Monastery next to Elijah’s Cave on Mount Carmel, Israel.
As you will see, you’ll have to look really hard to see the face of Jesus as did Veronica. Perhaps spiritually you can do so. But your heart will feel empty. Don’t be afraid. Jesus intends to rip out any heart of stone or any spiritual heart you might think you have, so as to give you a heart of flesh, as the great prophet Ezekiel says, a heart of flesh so that you can suffer, loving, as did Jesus, with a broken heart.
And then we are in solidarity with Jesus as He is in solidarity with us. The site advertised at the end of those videos has long been locked down by yours truly.
Oh, and the flowers for the Immaculate Conception? Just follow along on the Way of the Cross, the Via Crucis. You’ll see a gazillion flowers for the Immaculate Conception.
