Pope Francis Greets Mothers Around the World

‘…for their precious work in the upbringing of children and in guarding the value of the family.’

Pope Francis gave a shout-out to moms around the world on May 12, 2019, after praying the midday Regina Coeli with those gathered in St. Peter’s Square:

“Celebrated in many countries today is ‘Mother’s Day.’ I would like to send a dear greeting to all mothers, thanking them — an applause for all mothers! — for their precious work in the upbringing of children and in guarding the value of the family. We also remember the mothers that look at us from Heaven and continue to watch over us with prayer. Our thought goes also to our heavenly Mother, whom we will celebrate tomorrow, May 13, with the name Our Lady of Fatima. We entrust ourselves to Her to continue on our way with joy and generosity.
