Serving the Word: 6th June

MONDAY 6th JUNE 2022

John 19, 25-34:

“Jesus, when he saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved so dearly, 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 into his home”.

 

This is Jesus’ crowning hour.

It is the moment when from his side opened by the lance the Church will be born.

And Jesus, at that hour, wants to give us a Mother.

He wants the Church, which is all of us, to be sheltered in the Heart of a Mother.

We are all represented in the Apostle John who receives Mary as his mother at the foot of the cross and takes her home. Remember today that Mary is the Mother of the Church and is also your mother. Take her also to the home of your heart.

Say these or similar words to her:

O Virgin and Mother of God!

I give myself as your child.

I consecrate myself to your motherly love so that you may form Jesus in me.

Send me and make me a docile instrument of your motherly love.

Send me to proclaim the Gospel to all my brothers and sisters, who are also your children.

In you, my Mother, I have placed all my trust.

I will never be confused.

Amen.

Good day.
