Day 244 Jesus dies of a broken heart John 19: 31-42

Guided reflection:

This little detail about not breaking Jesus’ bones and the soldiers piercing his side has been explained to me in the past by a physician.  His observation was that when blood and water pour out, the heart has broken.  In reality, Jesus died of a broken heart.

Guided prayer:

Did Jesus die of a broken heart?  Of course, he felt the weight of the sin of the world…. But thanks be to God, this is not the end of the story!  Amen”
