The conception and formation of a baby in the womb is a uniquely intimate participation in God’s creation.
Raising and nurturing a child helps us understand the joys and sorrows of our Blessed Mother Mary.
Meeting the challenges of motherhood we share in Jesus’ cross and in the glory of His resurrection.
May we always treasure the privilege and blessings of motherhood.
Happy Mother’s Day!
The month May was named for the Greek goddess Maia, who was identified with the Roman era goddess of fertility, Bona Dea, whose festival was held in May. Conversely, the Roman poet Ovid provides a second etymology, in which he says that the month of May is named for the maiores, Latin for “elders.”
