FATHER ABEL’S COLUMN – MAY 10TH, 2015

mother-babyHappy Mother’s Day! I thank God for the great gift from my mother, grandmother and aunt in my life. Their sacrifices, presence and example has made me the person that I am today. Being a mother is truly a vocation. Mothers have the great gift of being co-creation with God. Mothers bring life into the world and they sustain our life as well. Certainly, I can’t thank God enough for all the many sacrifice that my mother has made for me. I am especially thankful for the example of faith my mother has been and continues to be in my life. My mother nourished the faith in my life and taught me the importance of having a relationship with God.

I encourage all you mothers to continue to do the same. Continue to be example of faith to your children. We need your faith to your children. We need your faith to inspire our young people to deepened faith in Jesus.

A Blessed Mother’s Day to all.
