A huge ‘Thank you’ to all Moms in a special way this weekend! And not only the Mom’s raising children in the home right now, but Grandmothers, Great Grandmothers, and spiritual mothers! I am particularly thankful for the many spiritual mothers I have known in this parish in my 7 years here. Wise, prayerful, and strong. Those who have always been praying for me (and all priests), and who especially show support when times are the toughest. Or those who have given me a gentle yet firm nudge back in the right direction when needed. Thank you. You know who you are.
We of course crown Our Lady in May as a reminder that she is the Queen of the Universe and the perfect Mother to us all. May is her special month of being honored since it is the best of spring. Our Lady was the beginning of the new springtime of hope for the human race 2,000 years ago. Truly knowing her perfect motherly heart cannot do anything but produce new life within our own soul, mind, heart, and entire life. While we never have and never will worship Mary as a God, she is worthy of the highest possible praise and honor given to a human being. How sweet it is to be loved by her! And we ask Our Lady in a special way to watch over all of the little ones who make their first Holy Communion this weekend! We place them and their families in the garden of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and consecrate them to her motherly care. May they grow in love and devotion to Jesus, truly present in the Holy Sacrament of the altar, all the days of their lives.
May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you Always!
Happy Mother’s Day! And Congratulations to Our First Communicants!
