A Few Words from Fr. Gregory:

This year Mother's Day is May 14 and the Salvatorians will be honoring the Blessed Mother and all mothers with a special mass and a Novena of Masses, May 14 to May 22. There are not enough words to thank our mothers for the sacrifice they make for us and the joy and love they share with us.  Just think how our lives have been shaped by that unending love - so reflective of the love of Our Savior by His Holy Mother.  I think about that "love" link we share with Jesus and Mary - it brings a smile to my face and happiness to my heart.

Fr Jordan wrote: "Never neglect to cherish and foster a childlike devotion to Mary at all times; let her be your advocate in all things."

Notice he wrote "at all times."  I treasure my own mother and I try to think of her and thank her everyday for all that she has done for me and others.  I would be remiss in not thanking my grandmothers, aunts, teachers and beloved friends who also have shown unconditional love.  They helped shape my life and I thank them - I would guess you also thank cherished women who have helped shape your lives.  Maybe say a special thank you this Mother's Day.

Remember beginning this Mother's Day, May 14, Salvatorians will say a special Mother's Day Mass and will celebrate a Novena of Masses to honor the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Let us include your intentions in these nine days of prayer devoted to your mother. You might also include grandmothers, aunts, sisters, friends, cherished teachers and neighbors who have in many ways given you that unconditional love that helped mold you into who you are.  And don't forget to share with me your own personal intentions. We, the Salvatorians, will consider it a privilege to pray with you to honor the wonderful women who are so important in your life.

Please send me your intentions either online, by mail or by calling 1-800-254-4902. To honor your mother or a beloved woman in your life please consider the gift of a Salvatorian Mother's Day Novena of Masses.  We have a beautiful Mass card for you to send to your Mother or another remarkable woman in your life.

With Mary on our side and the love of our own mothers we really can't go wrong. Send us the names of those who are special to you, and remember that throughout the Salvatorian Novena of Masses we always keep you in our prayers.

May our loving Savior and His Blessed Mother smile upon you and those you love most on this Mother's Day and each day of your life.
