That the origin of Mother's Day goes back to the time of the ancient Greeks and Romans? However the roots of Mother's Day can also be traced back in the United Kingdom where a Mothering Sunday was celebrated before it reached Canada. The day is meant as a day to thank all Mothers. To thank them for the gift of life, their love, their support, and for, quite simply, being a
Mother. Our faith also teaches us that we are still united to our Mothers who have gone before us to be with God. It is through prayer that we can communicate with our Mothers, all those that have gone before us, and our
God. We can also seek comfort knowing, again through faith, that our Mothers are united to us, for they too are praying for us here on earth while we continue our earthly journey. By praying to our Mothers in heaven, and to the
Virgin Mother Mary, they take all of our prayers to the feet the Jesus, who takes them to our loving God. We can also seek comfort in our faith with the knowledge that when our journey on earth ends, we will be reunited with
them in heaven, where they are very much alive. On this Mother’s Day, let us give thanks for the precious gift of our Mothers, and may God bless each of them abundantly, today and always.
