Happy Mother's Day

May 12, 2024

"Happy Mother's Day"

     First of all My children, I would like to wish most of the mothers and mother figures on this day, a very happy and blessed Mother's Day. I have said most mothers simply because as some of you are aware, there are those who call themselves mothers, but who are only mothers because of having given birth to a child or children. But as far as the nurturing, the love, the concern, and the caring for the children is concerned, that job was left up to someone else to do. When I think of this day, I think of those who try to raise their children in a way that teaches them how to please, honor, and respect The Lord JESUS and Me. The true mothers of whom I am speaking are also those who try to instruct their children when it comes to the difference between what is right and what is wrong. They are usually strong women who will take on the role of being dad and mom when necessary to do so. They are also women who will care for and about children who might not even be their own, but they just want what is best for them.
     Again I say, Happy Mother's Day to any and all of you who fit the bill and who deserve it. One should take a minute to stop and reflect on the type of mother you might have had in your life. Was your mother concerned about your spiritual development or was she more concerned with the secularism of life? If she was a single mom, could you tell that she still cared about you and that she loved you, even though she might have had to work more than one job just to make ends meet? Did your mom try to teach you the difference between right and wrong, even though you might not have listened to her every time she tried to get your attention to do the right thing? These are indeed strong women who have been called to be mothers on this Mother's Day and blessed she truly is for being such a woman. Let her light shine bright in everyone's life that she touches, and blessed she will be for so doing, in JESUS' Most Precious and Holy Name.
