Fr. James's homily for Mother's Day

There is no doubt that motherhood is a very high calling. But, to whom can mothers look as the real model of motherhood? Today’s modern culture offers many role models through television, movies, and women’s magazines. However, often these role models are either all together wrong or they offer a very limited and unrealistic view of true motherhood.

All mothers who wish to be true to their high calling, need only look to the woman who became the greatest mother of all. Born into humble surroundings, she was called by God to be the mother of the Son of God. She affirmed her obedience to the call of God, and lived out her vocation throughout her entire life. Mary, the mother of Jesus, our Blessed Mother, is the true model of motherhood.
