I had seen the movie The Passion of the Christ and there were many scenes that were very moving to me. There was a scene where Mary was up above in a courtyard, after Jesus had been flogged and scourged…there was blood on the pavement. She didn’t know where he was, but he had been taken to a dungeon below the courtyard and he was chained up down there. In the movie, at one point, she feels his presence…she knows he is suffering and she gets down on the pavement, as her deep motherly love has located him below her. She is pressing herself against the pavement and he suddenly is aware of her and is silently looking upwards. There is a thick cement floor between them, but they are aware of each others presence and their love for one another. I saw in myself the Mother who was finding the child inside.
