“No love in mortality comes closer to approximating the pure love of Jesus Christ than the selfless love a devoted mother has for her child.” ~ Jeffrey R. Holland
While celebrating motherhood can be traced all the way back to ancient Greek and Roman festivals, the modern celebration of Mother’s Day found it’s roots in the early Christian event called “Mothering Sunday.”
Mothering Sunday took place during lent and was a time when faithful Christians would return to the churches in their communities for a special service. Over the years we have seen Mother’s Day shift to include more secular customs where children present their mother’s with flowers and other tokens of appreciation. In 1914, the American version of Mother’s Day, created by Anna Jarvis, became an official part of the holiday calendar.
