Happy Mother's Day
The sun may have set on Mother's Day 2019, but it will never set on the love we have for our mothers. I hope you have enjoyed your memories, breakfasts, brunches, lunches, dinners, short trips, long rides, cards, emails, phone calls, text messages, and face times.
May we always remember our Mothers, Grandmothers, Great-grandmothers, Foster Mothers, Stepmothers, Godmothers, all the women who have been "mothers" to us in our lives, whether here today or deceased - and the greatest Mother of all,
The Immaculate Conception
- as we do on Mother's Day.
Let us end today with one of the most beautiful Mother's Day messages that has ever been written.
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy,
hail, our life, our sweetness, and our hope.
To you we cry, the children of Eve;
to you we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this land of exile.
Turn, then, most gracious advocate,
your eyes of mercy toward us;
lead us home at last
and show us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus:
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
Happy Mother's Day!
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
Immaculate Conception Church (Irvington-on-Hudson)
