Dear Friends in Christ,
On this Sixth Sunday of Easter, Christ assures us that we belong to Him, He calls us His beloved friends, He binds us to His Heart which is one with the Heart of our Father, from which flows an eternal wellspring of love.
As we commemorate Mother's Day, let us celebrate God's greatest love for us - He gave us the most precious gift of his only begotten Son so that we might have life through him. Let us celebrate God's unconditional love for us - He sent us our Immaculate Mother and our own mothers so that we might experience His self-sacrificing and nourishing love.
Let us gather together at the Lord's Eucharistic Feast on the most special day for Mothers. Let us thank God and honor His love, asking Him to bless all the mothers in our lives, seeking His divine Spirit to direct us to remain rooted in Christ's love and bear fruit for His sake as we love and serve God and one another.
Mother's Day Blessings in Christ,
Rev. Jonathan Paala

No one has greater love than this,
to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
You are my friends if you do what I command you. (John 15:13)
