Jesus Cries with Us

Elizabeth Mann, 20

Tears2 TSP 101081000I believe that Jesus cries with us and feels compassion when we are suffering. He understands because he was betrayed, mocked, beaten, tempted, and crucified. Jesus cried and felt grief.

Despite all the times I ask why, I also thank God for the pain I’ve been through. It has given me a deeper compassion for other people and has helped me to offer them the mercy that Christ has shown me.


God, even when we have no answers to our questions, help us to receive your comfort and offer it to others. Amen.
