The Savior's Last Appeal "Behold your mother"

"Now there stood by the Cross of Jesus, his mother"  John 19:25

This is a vital part of the ongoing spirituality of St. Simeon Skete, not just for Lent.  

We are in process of making new booklets but until they are ready, we thought it appropriate to share this devotion with you for use during Holy Week.
