A Mother's Day gift for you or your mother!

A Mother's Day gift for you or your mother!

Mothers give us everything they can, and they share their love with us unconditionally. And while we try to demonstrate our personal love for our mothers every day, there is one day – Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 14th when the world honors all mothers everywhere, whether they are still living with us or have passed on the glory of Our Lord.

As a beloved member of our extended Oblate family, I would like to help you show your mother how much you love her, appreciate her, and – possibly – miss her loving touch, thoughts and words. On the occasion of Mother's Day, I have arranged for some very special celebrations in honor of your mother:

• The first novena beginning on Mother’s Day will be offered at Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto and Tepeyac de San Antonio, a replica of the grotto at Lourdes where Our Lady appeared to St. Bernadette.

• A second Novena will also begin that morning at the Shrine of Lourdes in Cavancha/Iquique, Chile, celebrated by Father Argimiro Aláez, OMI, who has dedicated his life to working with the poor and most abandoned.

Please be sure to tell me the name of your mother, aunt, grandmother, or any special woman who has shared their love with you by checking the box in the dedication section below so she can be remembered during the two Novenas and have the many blessings of Our Lord and Blessed Mother showered upon her.

To honor your generous support, I have personally selected a beautiful gift that I hope you will give to your mother – or wear it yourself – to show your love for her and for Our Heavenly Mother. The bracelet of pearlescent beads depicts the Madonna and Child and has three heart-shaped beads that signify the love, charity and compassion we have for our mothers and all our family members.

Your gift today will help our Missionaries continue to soothe the pain of so many distressed mothers who hope for food for their hungry children or lifesaving medicine to give their sick toddlers. Your support also provides dignity to elderly mothers and grandmothers in our missions so they can lead lives filled with hope.

May Our Lord grant special blessings to you and your dear family on Mother’s Day and every day of the year!

-Father Art Flores, OMI
