I would like to share with you a wonderful letter received about a mother's love:
Dear Fr. John,
I hope this letter finds you well. My name is Mark and I live in Windsor, Canada. I would love to share with you something that happened to me recently.
My Mom was diagnosed with colon cancer. She had the tumor removed and found out that her cancer was already at Stage 4. My mom, knowing the outcome and being a strong woman of faith, kept a positive attitude and prayed for the best. Unfortunately, after trying a couple different chemo treatments and other suggested alternatives, she entered peacefully into the restful arms of Our Lord, Jesus Christ at the age of 63.
A few weeks later after her beautiful funeral, I received in the mail this package from you in regards to Mother's Day. As this will be the first time not having my mom around on Mother's Day weekend, I would like to make a donation in her name and for her to be remembered in a very special way.
My mom had a great devotion to the Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows. So much that on my parents 40th Wedding Anniversary, they went and visited the Shrine. My mom really did enjoy her time at the Shrine and was happy she made the journey to see it in person.
I would like to thank you for this mail. It came at the right time and reassures me that mom is at peace with the Lord. May her soul, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
After reading Mark's letter, I was reminded how many special ways we are able to help people honor their mothers. Today, you can recognize the wonderful mothers in your life. In addition to your mother, you can also honor daughters, aunts, and special friends - anyone who share unconditionally a mother's love.
Thank you for your generous support of the Missionary Oblates. I would be honored to help you celebrate the exceptional mothers in your life this upcoming Mother's Day.
