This is Bishop Michael Burbidge of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington. This Sunday we will once again have the great privilege to celebrate Mother’s Day, honoring those women, both living and deceased, who have dedicated theirlives to making ours better. The nurturing and care that mothers represent have never been so important than during this past year. Mothers, as your families faced once-in-a-lifetime challenges, it was unsurprising that you retained a steadfast hand, a strong resolve and an uncompromising commitment to care for your loved ones. Whether it was helping your children transition to a virtual learning environment, maintaining the health and well-being of your family, or ensuring that the spiritual needs of your family were met, we humbly appreciate your devotion, love and sacrifice during these demanding days. Thank you for the witness of your beautiful vocation, and wishing you abundant blessings, may God bless you this Mother’s Day, and always.
