This is the best medicine for our culture of snowflakes and hurt feeling:
In my own American experience of Mother’s Day, I have never heard of anyone complaining about honoring mothers. In fact, Mother’s Day is more sentimental and better celebrated than Father’s Day, where dads seem to get the short end of the stick.
But the article below speaks about all the pain some people have on Mother’s Day because life is broken by original and actual sin. Thus if they feel pain over how bad or how dead their mothers were/are or that moms have lost a child to death, or the child is in prison or the child is just simply a bum and no good for nothing, we should then not hurt the feelings of those who hate mothers or mothers who hate their children.
But, there is one point I agree. The Modern Vernacular Mass parish makes too much of Mother’s Day and in the most sentimental way possible. This is not the case with the TLM.
However, I think it is wise to speak about mothers during the Mass but always starting with Our Blessed Mother, the perfect mother. What Catholic complains about our Blessed Mother.
Then offer mothers a blessing, but have everyone stand, not just mothers. Don’t ask for applause for all our mothers. NO APPLAUSE DURING MASS.
Don’t have a long welcome and commentary of any kind prior to the Penitential Act. DON’T EVER DO THAT!
But has anyone ever complained bitterly about honoring Mothers on Mother’s Day at Mass?
