Mary, the Greatest Mother of All!

 The Church celebrates the entire month of May as a special month in which to honor Our Lady. There are May processions, crowning’s, and special novenas in her honor. May is bursting out with flowers - roses and wonderful scents fill the air, reminding us of the beauty of the Mother of God.
Mary was conscious of all the many hidden realities of what it is to be wife and mother. Her life with Jesus and Joseph was seasoned with many ups and downs trying to create a home in the midst of poverty and social unrest.  We honor her for giving us a holy example of motherly love in times of both joy and sorrow.
Mother’s Day is a time to show our appreciation for the women in our lives that have likewise shown us motherly love and care.  Not only our mother who gave birth to us, but all women who have sustained us as we’ve grown.   In each loving act of our mothers, we can see the hand of Mary guiding and bestowing favor.
I invite you to take time today, and each day this month, to pray for the intercession of Our Mother of Perpetual Help for your mother – that they may receive special assistance in their vocation of being a Mother.
Let us remember all our Mothers and entrust them to the care of Our Mother of Perpetual Help this day as we celebrate this holiday of honoring our Mothers.  

Mother of Perpetual Help, be with all Mothers this day.
Assist them with your motherly love and keep them safe from all harm!
