This is why we turn to Mary in difficult times

Feast of Mary, Mother of the Church

Today’s Gospel is where Mary is standing with the Beloved disciple before Jesus on the Cross. Jesus says to them, “Behold your son. Behold your mother.”

Just as she is a strong woman standing with him in this difficult time, so too does she stand with us in this difficult time. Fr. Ron reflects on how we turn to her during difficult times and express that in Mary’s prayer.
