Mary mother of the church

At the foot of the cross stood Mary the mother of Jesus.


As He was dying Jesus looked at His disciple John and said ‘This is your mother’ as He looked at Mary.


Then He looked at His mother and said this is your son.


It has long been understood that John represents all the disciples, that is us.


Mary the mother of the church is the mother of Christians.


She is the first one who said yes to Jesus when she agreed to cooperate with God’s will and said those very important words ‘Let it be done to me according to God’s will.’


She is both a role model and motherly in her love of the disciples of Jesus.


Like her, we are invited to trust even when we do not understand…


She is a motherly friend given to us by Jesus send love to all of her son’s beloved brothers and sisters …
