THE Blessed Virgin seated herself upon a large cloth spread on the ground, with her right knee, which was slightly raised, and her back resting against some mantles, rolled together so as to form a species of cushion. No precaution had been neglected which could in any way facilitate to her—the Mother of Sorrows—in her deep affliction of soul, the mournful but most sacred duty which she was about to fulfil in regard to the body of her beloved Son. The adorable head of Jesus rested upon Mary’s knee, and his body was stretched upon a sheet. The Blessed Virgin was overwhelmed with sorrow and love. Once more, and for the last time, did she hold in her arms the body of her most beloved Son, to whom she had been unable to give any testimony of love during the long hours of his martyrdom. And she gazed upon his wounds and fondly embraced his blood-stained cheeks, whilst Magdalen pressed her face upon his feet.
The men withdrew into a little cave, situated on the south-west side of Calvary, there to prepare the different things needful for the embalming; but Cassius, with a few other soldiers who had been converted, remained at a respectful distance. All ill-disposed persons were gone back to the city, and the soldiers who were present served merely to form a guard to prevent any interruption in the last honours which were being rendered to the body of Jesus. Some of these soldiers even gave assistance when desired. The holy women held the vases, sponges, linen, unction, and spices, according as required; but when not thus employed, they remained at a respectful distance, attentively gazing upon the Blessed Virgin as she proceeded in her mournful task, Magdalen did not leave the body of Jesus; but John gave continual assistance to the Blessed Virgin, and went to and fro from the men to the women, lending aid to both parties. The women had with them some large leathern bottles and a vase filled with water standing upon a coal fire. They gave the Blessed Virgin and Magdalen, according as they required, vases filled with clear water, and sponges, which they afterwards squeezed in the leathern bottles.
The courage and firmness of Mary remained unshaken even in the midst of her inexpressible anguish.* It was absolutely impossible for her to leave the body of her Son in the awful state to which it had been reduced by his sufferings, and therefore she began with indefatigable earnestness to wash and purify it from the traces of the outrages to which it had been exposed. With the utmost care she drew off the crown of thorns, opening it behind, and then cutting off one by one the thorns which had sunk deep into the head of Jesus, in order that she might not widen the wounds. The crown was placed by the side of the nails, and then Mary drew out the thorns which had remained in the skin with a species of rounded pincers,** and sorrowfully showed them to her friends. These thorns were placed with the crown, but still some of them must have been preserved separately.
The divine face of our Saviour was scarcely recognisable, so disfigured was it by the wounds with which it was covered. The beard and hair were matted together with blood. Mary washed the head and face, and passed damp sponges over the hair to remove the congealed blood, As she proceeded in her pious office, the extent of the awful cruelty which had been exercised upon Jesus became more and more apparent, and caused in her soul emotions of compassion and tenderness which increased as she passed from one wound to another. She washed the wounds of the head, the eyes filled with blood, the nostrils, and the ears, with a sponge and a small piece of linen spread over the fingers of her right hand; and then she purified, in the same manner, the half-opened mouth, the tongue, the teeth, and the lips. She divided what remained of our Lord’s hair into three parts,* a part falling over each temple, and the third over the back of his head; and when she had disentangled the front hair and smoothed it, she passed it behind his ears. When the head was thoroughly cleansed and purified, the Blessed Virgin covered it with a veil, after having kissed the sacred cheeks of her dear Son. She then turned her attention to the neck, shoulders, chest, back, arms, and pierced hands. All the bones of the breast and the joints were dislocated, and could not be bent. There was a frightful wound on the shoulder which had borne the weight of the Cross, and all the upper part of the body was covered with bruises and deeply marked with the blows of the scourges. On the left breast there was a small wound where the point of Cassius’s lance had come out, and on the right side was the large wound made by the same lance, and which had pierced the heart through and through. Mary washed all these wounds, and Magdalen, on her knees, helped her from time to time; but without leaving the sacred feet of Jesus, which she bathed with tears and wiped with her hair.

Sometime in January my loving cat of 12 years began to get sick. She started off losing her hair. Then the skin underneath would become raw and red. It looked almost like a chemical burn. The 1st trip to the vet they gave me 3 meds to give her because they believed she had a case of fleas (which was a load of crap) and a skin allergy.
A week passed and she did not get any better so I took her back. The vet upped her dose of prednisone and gave her a shot of antibiotic. 5 days later she began to lose evern more hair, she became lethargic, and she was losing weight rapidly. I called the vet on a Friday and told them what was going on. They told me to bring her in and they were going to keep her the weekend so that they could observe her.
They kept her the whole weekend and on Monday they did a skin biopsy on her. Tuesday they called to say I could come pick her up and see how she did at home. I picked her up on Tuesday night and brought her home. I had to pick her and take her to her litter box and to her food dish. Wednesday, 2/13, She took a turn for the worse. I won't go into all the details but I knew that had to put her down the next day. So that night she and I slept on the couch together. That was the only way she would go to sleep, other wise she would just stand and cry. So I wrapped her up in one of her blankets and laid her on my chest. I talked to her as she fell asleep.
That morning I went to work first and let my boss know what I needed to do. I called the vet and told him what was going on. He asked me what I wanted to do and I told him I thought our best option was euthanasia since we both believed that she was not going to get any better. I called my husband up and we went together to take her to the vet.
That was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do in my life. It felt like someone had taken my heart out of my body and ripped it completley out of my body. Before I left they asked me if I wanted a paw print, which I wanted. I cried for two days straight. Some people were really unkind as they told me, "It's only a stupid cat, I wouldn't have spent that much money on it" One insensitive asshole at work even called me on the phone and when I answered he said, "This is your dead cat calling you from beyond"
My mom called me a few times a day to see how I was doing and she would comfort me by telling me that " Tommorrow the pain in your heart will ease a bit more"
It has some, but I still miss her alot. A week later the vet called me and gave me the results of her skin biopsy and autopsy that they did on her. She had cancer of the pancreas. That type of cancer is fast moving and most cats don't last more than a month once it's found. The next day I received in the mail a sympathy card and a little poem. Here is what the poem says:
It is titled The Rainbow Bridge
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
