Foot of the Cross

Mary and Jesus

Peter Wiebe’s blog, Threshold of Heaven, takes readers to the foot of the cross.

Peter lost his precious little boy, Jesse, to cancer a year ago. Threshold of Heaven is a tribute to Jesse and a searingly honest account of the hardest grief any person can know; the loss of a child.

Peter’s posts make me think of Our Lady. She had to watch her child die, too. St Simeon told her when Jesus was only a few days old, “A sword shall pierce your soul.” And it did.

Yet, the Archangel Gabriel called Mary blessed.

This isn’t an award. It’s an acknowledgement of a beautiful, brave little boy and his loving and brave Dad.

Thank you Peter, for your generosity in sharing your love for Jesse with us.
