At the foot of the Cross there were, what is well known – still not enough appreciated – the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. John.
John, the only apostle who had died of some natural causes and, surprisingly, not of sudden shock, remained by His Master to the end, strengthened, as I believe, by Immaculata's intercession.
The said grace seems to be an important part of Christ's saving Plan: It is so, for before Jesus granted his beloved disciple – by the mean of His Holy Death – with the real fatherhood of God, He had chosen to explicitly provide him with the maternal care of Mary.
