For us as Catholics, it is not enough to have a sentimental outlook to Mary. We must know and understand why she is important on our journey towards salvation's destiny. Jesus certainly knew she was important because he left it for the last moment of his life to say to us behold your mother. In his dying breath he said on the cross at Calvary, "Woman behold your son." Then to the disciples Jesus loved, he said "behold your mother." Whenever someone says something in their dying breath, it is because what they have just said is important. The same holds true here for Jesus when his dying breath he gives us to his mother and his mother to us.
