Today's Gospel

Now there stood by the cross of Jesus, his mother and his mother's sister, Mary of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalen. 

When Jesus therefore had seen his mother and the disciple standing whom he loved, he saith to his mother: Woman, behold thy son. 

After that, he saith to the disciple: Behold thy mother. And from that hour, the disciple took her to his own.

“It is consummated.” (St. John 19, 30)

In holy love
She’ll consummate
The woman’s womb
Does monthly wait.

A soul whose heart
Will beat and bleed
Through little body’s
Gift, God’s seed.

Her agonizing
Ripped and torn
A flood of blood
Her child is born.

Creating still
Breasts with cream
Consummate mother
Reigns supreme.

Then sudden-shock
God’s gift He’ll call
She cries, “Have pity!”
Then falls the pall.

While death in love
Is mercy severe
It’s death of love
That we should fear.

For Christ Who died
Upon His cross
Like bloody birth
Came Life not loss.

The clock struck three
No evil got her
Like His Mother forever...
A consum-Mater!

Thank you for posting this entry.
Has anyone noticed the new trend of groups like 'Red Ice Radio' doing shows on the collapse of Western Civilization? The targeted audience is alienated white men & women.
If you notice,they do shows once every few weeks on 'white neo-paganism' and 'the truth behind Yule & Christmas'
I need to read the scriptures more and stay off the Internet.

Our Lady had no loss of blood or labor pains when She miraculously gave birth to Our Lord. This was infallibly defined as dogma at the Council of the Lateran in 649 A.D.

I agree 100% because without righteous anger or righteous hatred of Sin,we cannot truly Love.
What I am referring to is the media,banking,and government agenda of trying to make the races hate and fight each other.

The reference to "bloody birth" is clearly not to the virginal birth of Christ from His Immaculate Mother, but an image or allusion to normal births which are often bloody. Christ did shed His Precious Blood so that we can have that spiritual birth of Redemption. Maricusa
