The Painful bruise that wept.
I have been privileged in the past to view the dreadful, painful bruise of the shoulder of the Suffering Victim of our sins, our Lord Jesus Christ. Anyone who carries a large weight with sharp edges will find it causes a bruise or wound of some kind. It filled the length of His shoulder and was wide enough to cover the width of the flesh that covered the shoulder bone. It was not a cut, nor a puncture it was a bruise torn or forced open by the heaviness of the Cross a symbol of the weight of our sins wherein Jesus Christ as a proxy for us willingly accepted the pain that should be ours. His shoulder literally torn open by the pressure upon a internally weeping wound did not bleed profusely but steadily wept as should we for our scornful treatment through sin for some one who did us no harm.
