Behold Thy Mother

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is just.

Honor thy father and thy mother,

which is the first commandment with a promise:

That it may be well with thee,

and thou mayest be long lived upon earth.

Ephesians 6:1-3

When Jesus therefore had seen his mother,

and the disciple standing whom he loved,

he said to his mother: Woman, Behold thy son.

After that, he said to the disciple: Behold thy mother.

And from that hour, the disciple took her to his own.

John 19:26-27

This Mother’s Day, let’s not forget to pay our respects to our own mothers, and to any other mothers we are blessed to know, in person, in proxy, or in prayer, as circumstances allow.

Let’s also remember to reach out to our Mother in heaven, in whose honor we have the double assurance, from the old law and the new, of receiving the promised blessing of Our Lord:

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ!
