Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
Our Mother's are special to us in so many special ways. They have cared for us and guided us and at times they have gotten angry and punished us but most always because they truly believed that they were doing what was best...what would benefit us as we grew up and matured.
All of this means that our Mother's Day celebration can be a way of helping us understand that the caring and nurturing we associate with our mothers and with all women is an expression of the love of God.
May our Mother's Day prayer be the simple prayer of St. Julian of Norwich:
"O God, my kind mother,
my gracious mother,
my beloved mother,
have mercy on us." Amen.
Happy Mother's Day!
See ya Sunday!
