Church of the Home for Saturday, May 13

Celebrating Mothers

Mother’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to highlight the beautiful vocation of motherhood. It calls us to cherish the gift of life that we receive from our mothers and to pray for all women to whom God has entrusted life in a very special way. For many of us, our mother's were our first tangible encounter of sacrificial love.


John Paul II’s 1988 apostolic letter Mulieris Dignitatem - On the Dignity and Vocation of Women discusses the vocation of women to both biological motherhood and spiritual motherhood. Even women who are not called to be physical mothers can live out a rich a beautiful spiritual maternity.


As we pray in thanksgiving for the gift of mothers, we remember mothers experiencing difficult pregnancies and pray they may find support and encouragement in choosing life for their children. While Mother’s Day is not a liturgical or Catholic observance, many parishes still use this holiday to honor and pray for mothers.


The month of May has traditionally been dedicated to Mary, Mother of Jesus. Mary is the perfect example of motherhood, and is the mother entrusted to all of us by Christ at his crucifixion. Mother’s Day provides an opportunity to pray for mothers while honoring and seeking the intercession of Our Blessed Mother. It is a fitting day to ask God’s special blessing on all mothers.


A Mother’s Love

There are times when only a mother’s love Can understand our tears, Can soothe our disappoints And calm all of our fears. There are times when only a mother’s love Can share the joy we feel When something we’ve dreamed about Quite suddenly is real. There are times when only a mother’s faith Can help us on life’s way And inspire in us the confidence We need from day to day. For a mother’s heart and a mother’s faith And a mother’s steadfast love Were fashioned by the angels And sent from God above.

Ruby had a chance to stay in solitary confinement during today's experience. It was an eye-opening experience that Ruby feels no person or animal should ever have to endure.
