“When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing beside her, he said to his mother, ‘Woman, here is your son.’  Then he said to the disciple, ‘Here is your mother.’  And from that hour the disciple took her into his own house.”  (John 19:26-27)

As he is dying on the cross our Lord does a very tender thing; he finds a home for his mother and he gives his Church a mother. 

May God bless all mothers on this special day!
