Mother’s Day

Fourth Sunday after Easter 2017

This Mass prepares us for the upcoming feasts of the Ascension and Pentecost when Our Lord returns to heaven and sends the Holy Ghost.  This day is also a secular holiday in which we honor our mothers.  Falling as it does during the month of May our thoughts naturally turn to our heavenly Mother and all that she has done for us.  A tangible sign of this comes under her title of “Queen of Peace” which was added to her litany and soon afterwards led to her apparitions at Fatima and the end of the first World War.
