Lord Jesus, there are some losses in my life that I still mourn. Help me to let go of them and heal. Send me Your Holy Spirit, the Comforter. But more importantly, help me to face my own sinfulness and to feel genuine sorrow for the damage ~ both intentional and unintentional ~ that I have inflicted on others, and in so doing have inflicted on You. Comfort me as I mourn my need for forgiveness, and give me Your spirit of rejoicing over this new growth in me. Amen!
Getting back to Dominus Flevit Church (in the photo below), see the large urn-shaped sculpture on the top of the corner? There’s one on all four corners of the church, and they represent the tear jars in which Jews used to put their tears of mourning.
Jesus returned to this place after His Last Supper.
When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. Then Jesus told them, “This very night you will all fall away on account of me, for it is written: ‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’ But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee.”(Matt. 26:30-32)
