“When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! – John 19:26

Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy Mother! And from that hour the disciple took her unto her own” – John 19:27

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother Mary, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Dear woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into her home.

Sounds odd, but when I say that we feel really proud of an accident which happened in our lives, it is perhaps as closest to the universal truth as it could be. We feel so proud that we become religiously wedded to it.

How religious do we become when it comes to adopting an accident. The accident of being born into a particular religion is what I mean.

The alarm went off at six that Sunday too, as it does every morning and Charles woke up as he had been doing over the years, more as a ritual than as a compulsion.

Whether it was a holiday or a vacation or any other day of routine mundane, the alarm bell goes off without fail and Charles is off his bed and so are others in his house. The other days are reasonably peaceful but Sundays quite hectic.

That Sunday morning too, one and all in the house rushed for the washroom, pushing and jostling before the dressing table at that far corner of the bedroom, trying to look their best; well groomed. They were scurrying up to go to the Church for the morning mass. Perhaps, they all desired to impress God.

As Charles started the car, his mind took him back the memory lanes to about 10 years in the past.
