Mary was in Bethlehem to bring Jesus Christ into the world. And as He left the world behind, she was there, as well. In the midst of His deepest suffering, Jesus looked upon His mother with love and concern. He commanded the Apostle John to care for her as if she were his own mother. Today, Christ’s words apply to us, too: “Behold thy mother.”
