The author of the article, in light of John 19:25-27, analyses the role of Mary addressed by the evangelist with the characteristic title 'Mother of Jesus'. Special attention is paid to the relationship which Jesus creates between her and his 'beloved disciple'. In the scene on the cross the Lord speaks to them in words: 'Woman, behold, your son!' (v.26), and 'Behold, you mother!' (v.27). Mary as an individual (Mother of Jesus) and as a representative of the community of faith (either Israel or Church) reveals in an ideal way the grandeur of woman. Her love gives life. Her faith inspires the people of God to show an unconditional trust in Jesus, the Messiah of Israel and of the Church.
