In Honor of "Mom"

"Momma Mary," as she is affectionately known within my Catholic circle of friends, is celebrated today with the wonderful feast of The Assumption.

Nothing I can write could improve on what the Church has already written and proclaimed about our Blessed Mother. So I won't try. But if you need a little more inspiration about her, go back and read this post capturing the thought of John Paul II.

But let me offer this tiny thought about "Mom's" holy influence: I really didn't "get" motherhood and its eternal ramifications until two things happened in my life:

1. I became a mother myself. And,

2. I got to know, and later, consecrated myself to the Blessed Mother.

As far as I know, its all about the LOVE, baby. And as I watched this short video, I heard my own motherly heart saying, I really love my family. And I heard the echo of Momma Mary--on this her day--saying to you, me, and the Church and world at large: I really love my family.

Mary's Assumption into heaven means we have a mother's heart waiting for us there; she is showing us the way home.
