Gospel: John 19:25-27 (or Luke 2: 33-35)
Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister Mary, who was the wife of Cleophas, and Mary of Magdala. When Jesus saw the mother,
and the disciple whom he loved, he said to the mother, “Woman, this is your son.” Then he said to the disciple, “This is your mother.”
And from that moment the disciple took her to his own home.

REFLECTION:
In a counseling session for families of drug addicts, a mother shared, “I am mour­ning for my son, who died a few days ago.
He died of overdose after more than twenty years of heavy drug use. I am actually mourning for more than twenty years already.
People call me a bad mother. But being a bad mother can actually be better than being no longer a mother at the death of my son.”
One can read this sharing a hundred times and may still be difficult to grasp. Unless if the one reading is someone who is or has been in her place.
The sorrow of the Blessed Virgin Mother can be more difficult to bear than the suffering and death of Her Son.
She would have wished being the one crucified than ­being helpless in front of Her agoni­zing child.
