A Note for Priests on Mother's Day

Did you know that many women are hurting on Mother's Day?

When giving a special blessing to women on Mother’s Day, would you consider doing so when the whole congregation is standing or inviting all women, who nurture in any way, to stand and receive the blessing? 

Infertility affects women in different ways. Some have lost babies through miscarriage and others through abortion. There are women who have been unable to conceive for reasons beyond their control. Still others have placed babies for adoption. Thank you for considering these broken hearts.
