Vatican City, April 2 - Tears of suffering may
provide a kind of "eyeglasses" through which the risen Christ
might be seen, Pope Francis said during a mass Tuesday.
According to Vatican Radio, the pope explained that
shedding tears of pain can also allow people to come closer to
Jesus.
During the mass, celebrated at the Santa Marta residence
outside the papal apartments where Francis now lives, he
described the New Testament scene where Mary Magdalene wept at
Christ's tomb, thinking the body had been stolen and all was
lost.
"It is a time of darkness in her soul," the pope said,
adding that she did not yet realize that in fact Christ had been
resurrected.
Eventually, her tears provided a way for her to see Christ
after His resurrection, said the pope.
"So, perhaps we can ask God for the grace of tears," he
said.
