Behold Thy Mother – Jn19:27

“Behold, Thy Mother” are one of the seven cries of our Lord while on the Cross of redemption. This page, is used therefore to explain and expose the theology of those words to St John. At the foot of the cross, at that time was His mother ( Mary ) and one of His faithful Apostles. The image for us as his sheep is to see these two representatives of Jesus Church, at the time of severe trials. This is the way of the Cross, Jesus carried his, “until it was finished”. We as Catholics must bear our crosses, in perseverance and hardship “even unto death” if necessary. Also, when we speak of the Blessed Virgin as our Mother, a post will appear in this drop down. Because several Saints and Doctors of the Church, refer to Mary as the Church, Holy Mother Church essays may also find their way in this drop down.

For example,

St Cyprian Bishop, and Martyr as been quoted, ” “The Unity of the Catholic Church,” St. Cyprian writes, “You cannot have God for your Father if you do not have the Church for your mother

St Ambrose, Doctor of the Church, maintained that in Mary, we have the Mystery of the Church. When Jesus, said here is your mother, in seeing Christ Victory over death, every Christian becomes a son or daughter of the Church.

”It is impossible to save one’s soul without devotion to Mary and without her protection.”
-Saint Anselm, Archbishop and Doctor of the Church

”It seems unbelievable that a man should perish in whose favor Christ said to His Mother: ‘Behold thy son’, provided that he has not turned a deaf ear to the words, which Christ addressed to him: ‘Behold thy Mother.’”
Saint Robert Bellarmine, Cardinal-Bishop and Doctor of the Church

“If anyone does not wish to have Mary Immaculate for his Mother, he will not have Christ for his Brother.”
-Saint Maximilian Kolbe, Martyr, 1894-1941 AD
