Exhibition Notes

JOHN'S HOME (JOHN 19:27) "La Casa de Juan” or John's Home represents the answer of the beloved disciple. As said in John 19:27 "from that hour the disciple took her into his home." The symbol of the home stands for the disciple's heart. Mary becomes an intimate part of John's life. For Chaminade, and many other spiritual writers, the beloved disciple represents all future disciples of Christ, men and women. Church is truly Church only if she adopts Mary's faith, hope, and charity. In the words of Blessed William Joseph, "Jesus confided to Mary our Christian formation."
