To all mothers, spiritual or natural, a blessed and happy Mother’s Day! Here’s a bouquet of twelve images of our Mother Mary from my travels for you to contemplate the qualities of motherhood and rejoice in its many varieties. You may want to enhance your spiritual bouquet by praying the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary, a prayer of thanksgiving for God’s gift of Mary as our Mother, or other prayers for Mary’s intercession for mothers. Please know I’ve prayed these today for my mother and your mothers, my friends who are mothers or like mothers to others, those yearning to be mothers, and for all those mothers and grandmothers with whom we hope one day to be reunited.
