I continue to be fascinated by the symbolic message that lies in the life and death of Jesus Christ. In mourning and pain lies the redemption. In many ways, the lamentation is a new take on the ancient Jewish tradition at passover – to mourn the loss of freedom and celebrate redemption. An evolution to point to the true meaning of death and liberation.
Always thought it was interesting, that it was the women who got it…any thoughts why ?
