The Feast of Mary Mother of the Church.

"When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple there whom he loved, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son.”  Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her into his home." (John 19: 26 - 27).

Monday 1st June 2020, 9th Week in Ordinary Time is the feast of Mary, Mother of the Church.

Jesus in saying to Mary from the Cross, “Woman, behold, your son,” chose Mary to be the Mother of all disciples of Jesus.

One of the most touching scenes in the new Jesus Christ Superstar movie is where Jesus cried out from the Cross: "Where is My mother?" Mary was there under the Cross. The remarkable thing about the Blessed Virgin Mary is that she is the only human being that knew Jesus from womb to tomb to the birth of the Church on Pentecost Sunday. She was the sole eyewitness in these peak critical moments in the life of Jesus and the Church.

After the Ascension of Jesus, Mary guided the disciples and evangelists with information on the life and mystery of Jesus the Christ. John the Evangelist became the son of Mary as every great saint in the Church. Are you a child of Mary?
