John 19:25–27

Meanwhile, standing near the cross of Jesus were his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 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 home.


• Jesus asked Mary and John to make room in their lives for new relationships of care; could it be that I sometimes receive the same invitation?

• What were Mary’s thoughts on Calvary? What are my thoughts on the Calvary?
