Our church is named “St. Mary and St. John the Beloved (SMSJB).” St. Mary and St. John the Beloved disciple were very close saints to our Lord Jesus Christ and continued with Him till the Cross. Our patron saints loved God and one another, fulfilling the greatest commandments.
Our patron saints had (and still have) a special place in the life of our Lord Jesus Christ; Saint Mary as His mother, sharing special moments and secrets, and Saint John the disciple whom Jesus loved, shared special place, miracles and revelations.
Both saints received a unique commandment when our Lord Jesus Christ was hanging on the Cross to take care of one another.
May the Blessings of Saint Mary and Saint John the Beloved encompass us all. Glory be to God forever and ever. Amen.
