Station 8 Jesus comforts the women of Jerusalem

Mary the Mother of Jesus, Anna the Prophetess who had waited to see the messiah come, Peter’s mother in law whom Jesus healed, The women who had suffered with a hemorrhage for twelve years, Jairus’ daughter who Jesus raised from the dead, Mary Magdalene who Jesus freed from seven demons, the daughter of Abraham who was bound with a crocked back that forced her to walk doubled over, the gentile women who would not leave till Jesus agreed to free her daughter From a demonic position, the mother of James and John, Mary of Bethany and her sister Martha, the women caught in adultery, The widow with her two small coins, Mary the mother of James the Less, Salome, the bride whose wedding was saved by Jesus’ first recorded miracle, Joanna the wife of Chuza the steward of Herod, and Susanna who supported Jesus and his ministry, the women From Samaria who’s thirst was satisfied, The widow who received back her son. Jesus had healed them, comforted them, taught them, Loved them, gave them back their children, as no other rabbi had done. And as they watched him who had given them so much beaten were unable to help and give back to him.

But Jesus turning to them said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, stop weeping for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children.”

Luke 23:24
