A Few Words from Fr. Gregory:

My mother, a woman of great virtue and wisdom, strove to direct me on a "good" path and (despite a few missteps on my part) I think she accomplished what she set out to do.  Her love of and faith in God lead her to stress the important things in life.  She saw that when she lovingly followed the teaching of Our Savior and His Blessed Mother good things happened. She never felt alone-she had the love of God to guide her-and so then guided us!

Fr. Jordan wrote:
You must have a mutual love that comes from God, which is rooted in virtue, which doesn't seek itself, and therefore comes from God.

I treasure my mother and I try thank her everyday for all that she has done for me and others.  She instilled in me the belief that a love of God brings us the ability to give love to others.   On Mother's Day I remember and honor her and her virtuous and loving nature. Those of us who have been blessed to have received love and guidance from our own mothers or mother figures can surely find a way to show a little extra love on Mother's Day.

Beginning this Mother's Day, May 11, Salvatorians will celebrate a special Mother's Day Novena of Masses. Let us include your intentions in these nine days of prayer devoted to your mother. You might also include grandmothers, aunts, sisters, friends, beloved 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.

You may send intentions to me online, by mail or call us toll free at 1-800-254-4902. Please be sure to include your dear mother's name, living or departed, as well as the names of any others for whom you want to pray.

The Salvatorian Fathers and Brothers  have a special devotion to the Blessed Mother Mary, an amazing mother who is so important to us all.  We know her to be that very wonderful woman who transformed our lives. Know how blessed you are to experience Mary's love through the love given you by your own Mother. 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 prayer card and a Novena 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.

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.



P.S. Please take a minute to look at our Father's Day Mass card and prayer card. We will happily send you cards to use to remember your father, grandfather, husband, brother or friend on Father's Day, June 15.
