Happy Mother's Day
Mary is the exemplar of all mothers. Jesus held His mother in such high regard that, from the Cross, He made her the mother of us all.
The Church also holds women and the vocation of motherhood in high regard, rejoicing in woman's most precious gift -- the gift of bearing life.
Out of reverence to Blessed Mother and to the vocation of motherhood, read the words of Blessed John Paul II in his Apostolic Letter, Mulieris Dignitatem.
