“As an apologist I am the reverse of apologetic. So far as a man may be proud of a religion rooted in humility, I am very proud of my religion; I am especially proud of those parts of it that are most commonly called superstition. (GKC)

The grieving Mother stood weeping beside the cross where her Son was hanging
Through her weeping soul, compassionate and grieving, a sword passed.
O how sad and afflicted was that blessed Mother of the Only-begotten!
Who mourned and grieved and trembled looking at the torment of her glorious Child
Who is the person who would not weep seeing the Mother of Christ in such agony?
Who would not be able to feel compassion on beholding Christ's Mother suffering with her Son?
