Jesus left his mother to be our mother
Before fully accomplishing the work his father had entrusted to him, Jesus said to Mary, “woman, here is your son.” Then he said to his beloved friend, “here is your mother”. Not chiefly the expression of his devotion and concern for his mother; rather, manifests the mystery of a special saving mission. Jesus left his mother to be our mother. Only after doing so did Jesus know that “all was now finished”.
