Our Lady of the Rosary
"What father among you would hand his son a snake when he asks for a fish?"
When I read this I sadly think about the young parents who recently made headlines by duct taping their toddler to the wall. Unfortunately, there are mothers in this world without guidance, without Christ, without Mary to show them how to truly love their children.
One more thing: Christ is the example of perfect love. He is the one that teaches us how to treat others. Mary is a role model for saying "yes" when Christ calls us to put our love into action. Won't you reach out to another mom today and encourage her? Perhaps a mom at your child's school or in the grocery store line needs a smile and a kind word. Better yet, would you say a rosary today for all mothers, especially those who don't have Christ in their life?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your son to teach us how to love one another. Thank you for his mother, Mary, who shows us how to put our love into action. Bless all mothers today, especially those struggling with parenting their children. Send a role model to them to teach them about Christ and about how to be the mother you want them to be. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for me.
