Something to Think About

Evesham Editorial 20th Mar, 2023   0

SUNDAY was Mothering Sunday or Mother’s Day, when we give thanks for our mothers.

In 1947 when I was just 5 years old my father sadly passed away leaving my mother a widow with me to look after, which was very difficult in those early post war years, with a very small widow’s pension.

I am so grateful that along with some help from aunts and uncles my mother cared for me and was always there for me when I came home from school.

She passed away a number of years ago but I still have such fond memories of her and her sacrifices for me until when I was 17, she married again which allowed me the freedom to move out into the world and create a career for myself.

The Virgin Mary went through so many hard and difficult times, beginning with the birth of Jesus in that very unhygienic stable in Bethlehem and then as a refugee in Egypt fleeing from the ruthless King Herod.

She realised from the beginning that Jesus was someone special and He had a mission to accomplish here on earth and would no doubt have had many ‘run ins’ with her other children born after Jesus in explaining who He was.

At the cross when Jesus died all alone, Mary was there, feeling His pain and anguish, along with the Apostle John and Jesus reached out to them both by committing each one to the other.

That special love which Jesus had for Mary and John is available for each of us today as we accept Him as our Lord and Saviour.
