A Sweet Lullaby

Mater et filius – Mother and son, 2017

Those born always have a mother, an inevitable fact for those who live on Earth.

The mother is a certainty. Despite being a unique story with exceptional protagonists, this story is no exception.

Jesus of Nazareth and his mother Mary pulverised the most scandalising couple made up of Oedipus and Jocasta for notoriety even among the laity.

The mother/child relationship is the most complicated because it is eternal and inevitable, which often generates very stressful situations.

YOU ARE STUBBORN, TRULY STUBBORN!

So imagine this scene (the 4th of the ‘Via Crucis’): a mother meets her son, who is about to be crucified, surrounded by an angry mob of Jews who mock and insult him. I believe Maria has always thought that her weird son was the most stubborn person in the entire universe.

A moody, rowdy and rebellious son is a real tragedy.

YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME

An even greater tragedy when you have done everything to warn him about the risks of certain behaviours and ambiguous acquaintances.

How many times does your mother have to tell you not to challenge the Sanhedrin and not to irritate the Romans?

It was all in vain; he doesn’t believe you.

EVERYTHING WAS FORESEEABLE

But what can you expect differently when you, his mother, do not even know your child’s father?

A life full of extreme situations can only end badly and in tragedy.

Everything was predictable, but everything will not be in vain.

THE MOST ADORED OF ALL

A mother is always adorable for her child, but Maria is more so.

Everyone loves it, and this situation is millennia-old; it is lost in the mists of time.

Many call her Mary, but we have always called her the Great Mother.

I CAN DO BETTER, MUCH BETTER

However, her son never deceived her; he never promised her anything he could not keep. He only wanted to do the best he could.

And Maria, amid the crowd’s cries on that dusty road, forgives him even for that last immense pain.

She will forever be an understanding and loving mother.

Until next
