O Mary

O Mary

by John Paul II
conclusion of the Palm Sunday homily, April 13, 2003, Eighteenth World Youth Day

O Mary, sorrowful Mother,
you are a silent witness of these decisive moments for the history of salvation.
Give us your eyes so that on the face of the crucified One, disfigured by pain,
we may recognize the image of the glorious Risen One.
Help us to embrace him and entrust ourselves to him,
so that we be made worthy of his promises.
Help us to be faithful today and throughout our lives. Amen!
