At the Foot of the Cross

" the foot of the Cross.. Her presence manifests Her fidelity, Her constant abandonment to the designs of the Lord’s will, and a faith that is undiminished, unchanged and unaltered, even in the darkest hours.."

".. in the words of Jesus, “Behold your son,” Mary is invited to expand the horizon of Her faith and the understanding of Her role, since Her Motherhood is now moving beyond Her dying Son; it is being extended to the reality of a spiritual Maternity for all the children of God. This last will of Jesus on the Cross became, for Mary, a 'new annunciation' of a conception and birth: The Church."
