The Way of Broken Hearts

Once his public ministry had begun, Jesus had nowhere to rest his head, and Mary had nowhere to rest her heart. And now it had come to this, she pondered in her broken heart, in her heart that by its breaking was made whole. That is the way it is with discipleship. The way of the cross is the way of broken hearts.
