A Mother to Remember : A Catholic Reflection:
"Jesus has charged Mary with being our mother (Jn 19:26). She who was presented to the Lord in the Temple now presents us unfailingly to God in prayer with her motherly love. The Lord uses Mary to transmit great faith to her children in time of trial. Satisfy Jesus' thirst (Jn 19:28). Receive Mary's help.
PRAYER: Jesus, in giving Mary as my mother (Jn 19:26), You gave me more than a great sum of money (Lk 19:13). I will embrace and use this gift so as to bear the return You expect."
