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.
