U.S. bishops tell stories about their moms ahead of Mother’s Day.
Days before the U.S. celebrates Mother’s Day May 13, the national group Faith in Action urged people to think about immigrant mothers who have been separated from their children or run the risk of never seeing them again.
For Mother’s Day Crux decided to go talk to the moms in the Vatican, both biological and spiritual, about their experiences, challenges, role models and the gift of motherhood. All the women have in common the fact they occupy positions of influence in the Catholic Church.
Jesus Christ didn’t just appear as an adult, or fall from the sky. He was born of a woman, and had a human mother. Jesus honored Mary as his mother and showed her the love of a devoted son. With her maternal heart, she held a privileged place in his life and mission.
