Our Blessed Mother: Mother of God and Our Mother

05-19-2019Father Michael Straley


Last weekend we celebrated Mother’s Day. Many little children made special cards or even a gift for their mother. It is one of the biggest days in the restaurant take mom to dinner so she doesn’t need to cook that day. At mass I often see mothers with flowers and they are often more dressed up. Yes, it is a special day.

After my mother died, this day felt a little different; I mean, do I go to the cemetery to visit her? Do I sit and remember all of those memories, feeling either sad or thankful? How do I celebrate Mother’s Day when my mother has died? Or, do I just go on my regular way and ignore the day? It was a little sad and confusing for a while, not just on Mother’s Day but every day.
