Missing the Mark

On the way home from my son's First Communion, we passed a sign advertising a sermon at the Independent Baptist Church: "What Kind of Women Change the World?"

I got so sad.

There is only one woman who changed the world, Mary.

The rest of us women are only influential to the degree that we model our Mom's virtues and seek out her advice.

My Mom. Your Mom. Their Mom. So many good, loving Christians who don't know what a powerful friend they have in Mary, the Mother of God.

This May, let us love Mommy Mary double to make up for all of our siblings in Christ who don't know how to send her a Mother's Day card with each Hail Mary.
