To be a mother is a great treasure. Mothers in their unconditional & sacrificial love for their children are the antidote to individualism ~ Pope Francis
Sunday, May 10th, is Mother’s Day. We honour and celebrate all of our mothers – including our grandmothers, godmothers, new mothers, mothers-to-be, step-mothers, foster mothers, adoptive mothers and all those who care for us in motherly ways. We also pray for all mothers who have entered the heavenly kingdom.
