Or Hope and Joy ?         27  And there followed him a great multitude of the people and of women who were mourning and lamenting for him.  28  But turning to them Jesus said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children.  29  For behold, the days are coming when they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren and the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!’  30  Then they will begin to say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us,’ and to the hills, ‘Cover us.’  31  For if they do these things when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?” Why do we begin to follow Jesus?
