For 24 May 2021, Memorial of Mary, Mother of the Church, based on John 19:25-27
Standing near the cross of Jesus were his mother, and his motherâ€™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, â€˜Woman, here is your son.â€™ Then he said to the disciple, â€˜Here is your mother.â€™ And from that hour the disciple took her into his own home.
