Without our Mothers, the Faith Would Have Died

This is an inescapable conclusion:  Without mothers, the faith would have died a long time ago.  In times of persecution, of hardship or just plain ignorance or laziness, mothers have ensured that the Christian faith has been kept for another generation.

When I was going through my confirmation classes back in the 7th and 8th grades, my mother was the one who was helped me with my memory work, made sure I took good sermon notes and even helped me with my banner that hung from the wall of the church on my confirmation day back in 1990.  I may not have understood a lot (I still don't), but I think if it were not for her guidance and help, I probably would have been one who fell away and stayed away from the church.  Thankfully, that didn't happen.

So, to all our mothers, who have helped to preserve the faith for another generation despite the work of the evil one, a great thank you.  I'm sure Christ thanks you as well.  And we love you!
