Church of the Home for Saturday, May 7

Happy Mother's Day

In our celebration of Mother's Day tomorrow, we thank all the moms who gave us life and show sacrificial love to us. Motherhood is a vocation - how God calls individuals to serve Him in the world - and is expressed in many different forms, both physical and spiritual. We have Godmothers, aunts, sisters, friends, work moms, teachers, etc. Anyone who has taught us life lessons, inspired us, and cared for us is a mother.

  • What is one quality your mother gave you that you now carry into your life?

  • Who are the mothers that have shaped your life?

  • To whom are you a mother?

As Catholics, we also look to Mary as our Heavenly Mother and the perfect example of Mother. She is the mother entrusted to all of us by Christ at his crucifixion.

A Mother's Day Blessing

Loving God,

as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children,

so you give life and care for your Church.

Bless these women, as we celebrate this day in their honor.

May they be strengthened as mothers.

Let the example of their faith and love shine forth.

Grant that we, their sons and daughters, may honor and appreciate them with a spirit of profound respect.

May the example of Mary, mother of Jesus, inspire them to live their vocation as mothers. Guide and protect them in challenging times and help them to continue to trust in you all the days of their life.

Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.


JJ Heller, a popular Christian recording artist, has released a beautiful song as a tribute to her mom and you’re going to want to share with your own mom this Mother’s Day. Too often we don’t realize what a gift our parents have been to us until we are living on our own or when we have kids of our own. It is then that we finally begin to understand the many sacrifices our moms and dads made for our benefit.

Not only does this song help us to appreciate all that our own mothers have done for us, but it also helps those who are mothers themselves reflect on what it really means to be called “Mom”. Reflect on the following questions.

  • How have your own parents influenced your parenting style?

  • What will your son or daughter remember about you?

  • Do you see your role as a mom as a calling and a vocation?

  • How do you show your child the love of Jesus each and every day?

  • What are your greatest struggles as a mother?

  • What are your greatest blessings because of motherhood?

The life of a mom is full of sacrifice and hard work, but Christ is our model of what it means to give of oneself for the good of another. Learn to appreciate the many blessings and joys that come with the gift of motherhood. Offer each day to God and ask the Holy Spirit to lead you in your vocation.
