Saint John the Evangelist: Behold, Your Mother
|The House Where Saint John Took Care of Mary|
If you have ever been to Ephesus, Turkey, you have probably seen "Mary's House" - the house where some traditions claim Saint John took care of the Lord's mother after the Crucifixion. I sometimes wonder ... did the early Catholics of Ephesus interact much with John and Mary? Did Paul ever visit them during his travels there? Did John and Mary ever attend church services at Prisca and Aquila's House Church? When Paul wrote his letter to the Ephesians, did John and Mary join the Christian community there and read the letter with them? Was it while John and Mary were living in this house that Mary bilocated to give encouragement to John's brother James who was in Spain? It would be interesting to know!
