From Archbishop Michael Jackson : Mothering Sunday

Diocesan News

Added on 08/03/2013

Each year Mothering Sunday reminds us of the ways in which human and divine nurturing come together to equip the children of God to be active disciples of love and growth in the world around us.

Mothering Sunday embraces everything from small children bringing tea and toast and other tokens of love to mothers, to the public reading in church of the scripture: ‘But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all’, (Galatians 4:26).

While remembering all mothers in our thoughts and prayers on this Mothering Sunday, we think particularly of those women caught in situations of conflict and social upheaval. Let us pray for God’s blessing on them as they strive to nurture and protect their families and loved ones in difficult circumstances.
