Cards of remembrance, flowers and prayers for mothers and women in any state of life who nurture others are thoughtful gifts on Mother’s Day, celebrated this Sunday, May 12. This package of resources from our partner Catholic News Service unpacks the apparent and the hidden beauties of motherhood.
Don’t forget a rose for our spiritual mothers
Remember to wish all women — married, single, consecrated — a happy Mother’s Day, for all are mothers who by their feminine gifts bring graciousness and blessing to the world.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
