Mothering is not a task for mothers alone

Gospel        John 19.25–27

Hear the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to John

All        Glory to you O Lord   

Meanwhile, standing near the cross of Jesus were his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing beside her, he said to his mother, ‘Woman, here is your son.’ Then he said to the disciple, ‘Here is your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his own home.

This is the Gospel of the Lord

All        Praise to you, O Christ.
