John, Mary, and the Crucified Christ
We can only imagine the intense agony and powerlessness that Mary, the mother of Jesus, and John, the Beloved Disciple, experienced as they watched the life ebbing away from Jesus. Even while suffering on the cross, Jesus consoles his mother by giving John to her as a son. Sliding into death’s void, Jesus wants to make sure that his mother is cared for, and that his disciple has a mother to call his own. In the trying days ahead, Mary will need a son to support her in her grief, and John will need a mother to comfort him in his sorrow.
Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Dear woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.
