Mother’s Day is celebrated on May 13th. The Dominican Center: Spirituality for Mission celebrates the strength and qualities of all mothers. Children grow in wisdom and grace within their mother’s care, and faithful, caring, and strong mothers mirror the presence of God to their young. “As a mother comforts her child, so will I (God) comfort you.” (Isaiah 66:13) Mothers with resources can give their children what is needed. But mothers who are poor and without support struggle. As people of faith we must help these women to care for their children. In today’s world of unrest, there are also large numbers of refugee mothers with limited resources and no home. Their needs are extensive and often overwhelming. For more information regarding refugee mothers see www.jrsusa.org. A truly Christian celebration of Mother’s day will take steps to support those mothers most marginalized and in need of support for providing the loving care only they can give their children.
