TRADCATKNIGHT: Fr. Voigt, "Jesus Wept"
Many prayers are uttered by the lips of men and women but the "Prayer of Tears" is most efficacious. Our Lord wept over a city just as He wept at the tomb of Lazarus. He gives us the example which gives more emphasis to His words. St. Augustine spends a great deal of time contemplating the tears of his mother, Monica, which softened his soul and brought him to the Truth of Jesus our Lord. Then he justifies the tears which he shed at his mother's death. Together let us contemplate what causes the tears of God and how we must come to tears ourselves in the prayer life that grows. tradcatknight.blogspot.com/2018/07/fr-voigt-jesus-wept.html#more
