W
hen it comes to scripture interpretation, the Catechism states:


115 According to an ancient tradition, one can distinguish between two senses of Scripture: the literal and the spiritual, the latter being subdivided into the allegorical, moral and anagogical senses. the profound concordance of the four senses guarantees all its richness to the living reading of Scripture in the Church.

116 The literal sense is the meaning conveyed by the words of Scripture and discovered by exegesis, following the rules of sound interpretation: "All other senses of Sacred Scripture are based on the literal."

117 The spiritual sense. Thanks to the unity of God's plan, not only the text of Scripture but also the realities and events about which it speaks can be signs:

- 1. the allegorical sense. We can acquire a more profound understanding of events by recognizing their significance in Christ; thus the crossing of the Red Sea is a sign or type of Christ's victory and also of Christian Baptism.
- 2. the moral sense. the events reported in Scripture ought to lead us to act justly. As St. Paul says, they were written "for our instruction".
- 3. the anagogical sense (Greek: anagoge, "leading"). We can view realities and events in terms of their eternal significance, leading us toward our true homeland: thus the Church on earth is a sign of the heavenly Jerusalem.



So, the literal sense tells us that Jesus really did give Mary over to the care John, and tradition tells us where they actually lived in later years.

The spiritual sense tells us that when Jesus speaks to the disciple he loves he is speaking to all of us for he loves all of us, and therefore he tells us all to behold our mother, and we are all to take her into our home.

And in that love the Father and Son will make a home with us.

Fair enough.

What do these three simple words from the 19th chapter of John mean to you?

That By Christ intent we are to accept Mary as:

Our mother too

Able to AID us in knowing more fully Her Son and in following HIS Teachings

DO WE HAVE TOO? NO!

But it is foolish not too.

God Bless,
Pat

Yes.

25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26 When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing by, He said to His mother, “Woman, behold your son!” 27 Then He said to the disciple, “Behold your mother!” And from that hour that disciple took her to his own home.
