“When Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing near, 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 to his own home.” (Jn. 19: 26-27) Luke Arredondo, Director of Faith Formation, offers a meditation on the role of Mary’s motherhood at the Cross. By understanding Mary’s role as the new “woman” of salvation, we see her become the mother of all the living at the foot of the Cross.
