10 Minute Daily Retreat - Thirteenth Station: Jesus Dies on the Cross

 “But Jesus gave a loud cry and breathed his last’’. Mark 15:36

Death has many guises

‘This dying man has no relatives, I want you to sit and hold his hand.'  What compassion this nurse had so many years ago.
I was very young and in my first year of nursing. What did I know of death and pain and dying?


‘Dying is a lonely process,' she said as she led me into the patient’s room. 'He is unconscious but on some level he will know that you are there.'
