From that hour the disciple took her into his home

“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.” (JN 19: 26-27)

This is what Our Lord wants for us: “take her—His Mother–into our homes.” She knows her Son perfectly; she spent 30 years with Him before He started His mission and was and is His best follower. She knows her Son perfectly because she loves Him in the most beautiful way. When we take her “into our homes,” she will teach us, protect us and lead us to love Our Lord more and more.

“O happy Virgin, you gave birth to the Lord; O blessed mother of the Church, you warm our hearts with the Spirit of your Son Jesus Christ.” (Gospel Acclamation)
