Celebrating the Women in Your Life

Celebrating the Women in Your Life

Mother's Day is coming up on May 8
Let us give thanks and pray to the ultimate mother, Mary, as we come upon Mother's Day next Sunday. We celebrate her grace and selflessness. Over the years, many prominent saints and renowned religious figures have bestowed their feelings and thoughts of Mother Mary. As we start our Mother's Day plans, we keep these beautiful expressions in mind and welcome you to join our growing community and light a candle for all the women in your life, blessing your circle of mothers, grand-mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, family who are friends and friends who are family.
"May the mother of Jesus and our mother, always smile on your spirit, obtaining for it, from her most holy son, every heavenly blessing." 
- Saint Padre Pio
 
"If you ever feel distressed during your day, call upon our Lady, just say this simple prayer: 'Mary, Mother of Jesus, please be a mother to me now.' I must admit, this prayer has never failed me."
Blessed Mother Teresa
 
"Let us entrust to her intercession the daily prayer for peace, especially in places where the senseless logic of violence is most ferocious; so that all people may be convinced that in this world we must help each other, as brothers and sisters, to build the civilization of love."
Pope Benedict XVI
 
"To give worthy praise to the Lord's mercy, we unite ourselves with your immaculate mother, for then our hymn will be more pleasing to you, because she is chosen from among men and angels. Through her, as through a pure crystal, your mercy was passed on to us. Through her, man became pleasing to God; Through her, streams of grace flowed down upon us."
Saint Faustina
 
We light a blessed candle in your honor at  one of the holiest sites on earth for Christianity, the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. This candle symbolizes light and faith in His divine presence. We invite you to join us.
