The Seeds of Motherhood

In honor of and in remembrance of all Mothers with all thanksgiving to God…

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.” (John 19:26-27)

While enduring pain and suffering on the cross, Jesus turned His focus and care toward His mother, Mary. He lovingly and tenderly spoke, releasing her to the care of His beloved disciple, John. It was a moment that radiated the love of Jesus for His mother whom He held so very dearly in His heart.
