Three quick notes for this Mother’s Day:
- Happy Mother’s Day for all the mothers out there, especially the new mothers. A friend of mine and his wife are celebrating their first Mother’s Day together (she’s due in August), so special prayers for them today.
- Heard about an interesting tradition: buying flowers, and laying them in front of statues of Mary in church. Our Mary statue is in the sanctuary, so it’s not very feasible, but I’ve heard that the Basilica gets so many flowers that it looks and smells like a garden today. What a wonderful way to honor our Mother!
- Catholic Hour has a great piece called “Are You My Mother?” which explores the Motherhood of Mary.
Hope you’re all having a wonderful day!
