Mother’s Day

Mom. आमा. Mother. Mamá. 母親. Mommy. Mamãe. 母. Grandma. Nonna. 祖母. Nana. Abuela. Bibi. हजुरआमा. Nini.

There are many ways to say and experience the word mother. Everyone has their own rendition or even several. This year on Sunday, May 14th, we celebrate all of these women and how much they mean to us. We celebrate with them near and far. We celebrate them past and present.

Below we have a few images of letters/emails from Maryknollers to their mothers, as they celebrated them from afar while in mission:
