As we continue our study of the last words of Jesus, we look at the charge Jesus gives to His disciple John and the comfort that He gives to His mother, Mary. Jesus gives John the vocation of loving others by reminding him to take care of Mary when He is gone. He also pours out comfort to His mother, Mary, by telling her to look upon Him on the cross. He reminds her by calling her to look upon Him that she will be okay. He reminds her of who He is and what He brings to her and the world: hope. Reflect on these words, the call He gives to John and us to love and care for others, and the hope He gives us even when we face change.
