The Congregation of the Cross: Woman, behold your son; Behold your mother
Pastor Rob Myallis   -  

Lent 3 (March 3, 2023)

“Woman, behold your son; behold your mother.”

Jesus today creates a new family – an authentic community out of people who have experienced trauma and heartache. 

As we go through life, we often encounter the need for new relationships and for authentic community.  Today’s reflection is about how we often look for it in various places…but finding it remains allusive.

The authentic community, the community we seek:  One in which the other is a gift to us and we are free to be ourselves, this is the congregation of the cross.  This is the community that Jesus inaugurates with these words and the community into which we are invited.
