III - "Behold your son..."

"Woman, behold your son!...Behold your mother."
John 19: 26-27

Our attention shifts to those gathered at the foot of the cross. We know that Mary, Jesus' mother is there, as is the disciple John. Also present are Mary Magdalene and Mary of Cleopas. It's nothing like the huge crowds that followed Jesus in the years before this!

Perhaps this is a moment to reflect on our families - our mothers, our fathers, our sons, our daughters, our brothers and sisters...

When we pray to Mary we are praying to a woman, a mother who knows what pain is...
