I can also envisage this situation in heaven when calling for my mum I will have both of them coming to me: my Heavenly Mother Mary and my earthly Mother Teresa. How awesome it is going to be. Do I still need to have more reasons to call Mother’s Day a Day of Great Thanksgiving?
As a priest I would like to send my blessing not only to my mum but to all women who are mothers. That’s my prayer and blessing for you - holy mothers of this planet:
Loving God, as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children, so you watch over your Church. Bless these women, that they may be strengthened as Christian mothers. Let the example of their faith and love shine forth. Grant that we, their sons and daughters, may honour them always with a spirit of profound respect. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
May almighty God bless you all, the Father, and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
