Our Lady Of Sorrows (On Mary Part 24)

Updated: Apr 8, 2022

Today’s gospel: John 19:25-27

Yesterday the Exaltation of the Holy Cross; today the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows. Jesus and Mary. Son and Mother. On the cross and by the cross. Pierced by a lance and pierced by a sword. Redeemer and Co-Redemptrix. Both crushing the head of the serpent. A dynamic duo. A terrific tandem. Our Lord and our Lady.

Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. And through his earthly existence, Mary was there from beginning to end. He gave her life and she gave him life. She taught him and he taught her. Jesus intercedes for us before the Father; Mary intercedes for us before the Son.

Jesus and Mary know our sorrows and our pain. And Jesus has given us his most precious Mother to be our own. “Then he said to the disciple, ‘Behold, your mother.’” (v.27a). Just as we accepted Jesus into our hearts, so should we accept Mary into our homes. “And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.” (v.27b).

Have you welcomed Mama Mary into your heart and into your home?
