Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church

John 19:25-34

On this feast of our Blessed Mother we reflect on our relationship with Mary who has been given to us as our Mother. She was faithful to her Son and her God all the way to the foot of the cross. As our spiritual mother, she also enters into our experience and shares our pains and sorrows. She is with us in our times of testing as she was with Jesus. Mary, Mother of the Church, intercede for us.
