MARY THE GREATEST MOTHER!!!
Congratulations to all our Mothers this Mother’ s Day Weekend. The natural role of mothering in the life cycle is central and I unmatched in nature. Every species has its own checks and balances to insure the continuation of this vital function. The central and unmatched role that mothering plays in nature was elevated to a divine role with the birth of Jesus. Mary is the greatest of all mothers. Every mother now shares in the divine mission of Christ because of Mary. The month of May is a Marian month. As we celebrate this years Mothers Day, let us not forget to celebrate the life of the mother of mothers, Mary the mother of Christ.
