4) She is our Mom
Whether we know it or not, Mary is our spiritual Mother. That moment on the Cross, when Christ gives Mary to St. John, and St. John to his Mother, is when Mary’s role as mother expands to all of humanity. She is closest to those who will stand with her at the foot of the Cross, but her love is not limited just to Christians. She knows well what it cost her Son to purchase our salvation. She doesn’t want to see it squandered.
