According to Jesus it is not easy to sit at his right or left side. The word 'sit' sounds passive. One of the brothers who was present with the crucifixion of Jesus, got there a second mother, Mary. When we are close to Jesus, we may be assigned important tasks.
I am just wondering where the second brother was during the crucifixion.


Jesus, do I entrust myself in your neighborhood? Can I drink the cup?

The cup Jesus is going to drink.
