One of the most beautiful vocations in the world is to be a mother.
Women have been given the most incredible gift by God to bring a child into the world. It is an intimate sharing in God's creative power, and this privilege he has granted to women.
Within the depth of her being a new human being is created, and from the very first moment when she realises she is blessed with a new life, there is an immediate bond between the herself and her child which will last for ever.
As the child grows and develops within her, the mystery of creation is slowly fulfilled, and after her longing and expectation, she is able holds the fruits of her love in her arms with the birth of a beautiful child. Nothing can ever equal this moment both for its emotional impact and the wonder of God's almighty power.
Much love is poured out on the new babe, for the heart of the mother is large and generous enough to give the child all her affection.
As children grow up, they become more aware of the love that has flowed from their mother's heart to them over the years, and they wish to show their appreciation.
Mother's Day is a great opportunity to do this and show there is no one in the whole wide world like my mum.
Make it a great day for your mother—for she’s worth it!
We wish all the mothers in the parish a very happy and blessed day
with lots of cards, flowers and gifts from all the family
