One of the final prayers in the Ignatian Spiritual Exercises suggests that we contemplate a first post-resurrection appearance by Jesus to his mother. Becky Eldridge provides a short response here.
No, there's no such meeting recorded in the Bible, but the invitation to "imagine" radiates from the Exercises, and Ignatius himself had a deep devotion to Mary, so it's not a surprise that he himself would imagine such an encounter.
Last Friday, listening to the reading of the crucifixion from the Gospel of John, I zeroed in on Jesus's words to "the disciple whom he loved," "Behold, your mother!" and on the disciple's consequently taking Mary into his household. The latter is covered in one short sentence, but those of us who have dealt with the physical dislocations required by a child's death know that that short sentence offers only the merest hint of the crushing weight of responsibility for living arrangements and possessions that must be dealt with.
On Friday, hearing those words, I imagined Mary sadly packing up her things, and what few things Jesus might have left behind and, bent over in horror and sorrow, piling them up on a donkey for the move down the street. I imagined her that Friday evening, in a room that was not hers, in a house that was not hers, peering out the window into a future that was not hers.
But, today, I return to a prayer I have made often: Mary sitting on a bench outside the house on Sunday morning, her face turned toward the sun, her mind and heart trying to grasp the experiences of the preceding two days, when a shadow blocks the sunlight and causes her to open her eyes: her own son, returned to her.
Really, I have not the slightest difficulty imagining either the scene or the fullness of her heart.
