The burial of Jesus
And behold there was a man named
Joseph, who was a counselor, a
good and just man, of Arimathea, a
city of Judea; who also himself
looked for the kingdom of God. This
man went to Pilate, and begged the
body of Jesus. And taking him down,
he wrapped him in fine linen, and laid
him in a sepulchre that was hewed in
stone, wherein never yet any man had
been laid. And it was the day of the
Parasceve and the sabbath drew on.
And the women that were come with him
from Galilee, following after, saw the
sepulchre, and how his body was laid.
And returning, they prepared spices and
ointments; and on the sabbath day they rested,
according to the commandment.

Finally, they take the stone and close up
in the holy sepulchre the body of Jesus,
that great treasure, greater than any in
heaven and on earth.
Mary left her heart buried with Jesus,
because Jesus was all her treasure:
"Where your treasure is, there will
your heart be also."
And where shall we keep our hearts buried?
With creatures? In the mire? And why not with
Jesus, who, although he has ascended to heaven,
has wished to remain, not dead but alive, in
the most holy sacrament of the altar?
This poor mother went away so afflicted and sad, according to St. Bernard, that she
moved many to tears even against their will,
so that wherever she passed, all wept who met her and they could not restrain their tears.
He adds, that those holy
disciples, and the women who accompanied her, mourned for her even more than for their Lord.
St. Bonaventure says, that her two sisters covered her with a mourning cloak. The sisters of
our Lady wrapped her in a veil as a widow, covering as it were her whole countenance. And he
also says, that passing, on her return, before the cross, still wet with the blood of her
Jesus, she was the first to adore it : Oh holy cross, she exclaimed, I kiss thee and adore
thee; for thou art no longer an infamous wood, but a throne of love, and an altar of mercy,
consecrated by the blood of the divine Lamb, who has been sacrificed upon thee, for the
salvation of the world.

R. O Lord, make haste to help me!
Pray Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit as it was in the beginning is
now and ever shall be world without end, Amen

torment that filled thy burdened heart, implore for me the Virtue of Zeal and the Gift of
