Happy Mother's Day 2016

A wonderful day to give thanks for our mothers.

Being immersed in the pop culture as I am, I always think of the movie The Crow on this day because of a line that the main character says, "'Mother' is the name for God on the lips and hearts of all children."

While there is a bit of theological resistance from me, I understand the sentiment.

And we cannot forget this:

25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26 When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing by, He said to His mother,“Woman, behold your son!” 27 Then He said to the disciple, “Behold your mother!” And from that hour that disciple took her to his own home. (Jn 19:25-27)

Let us also remember the Mother that Christ gave to us on the day He gave His life.
