Dear my Luke Allen,
On this Mother's
Day my thoughts are so full of you as they should
be because you are my precious baby. I want you to
know that today I especially thank God for the gift
of you, and that my heart is so full of love for you.
But even though I love you so much that my heart hurts
to see you suffer, know that God loves you so much
more. He loved you so much that he thought of you
before your life began, even before the world began.
He knew you were going to suffer, but He loved you
too much not to create you, just like He loved the
whole world too much not to send His only Son to redeem
it. And His Son, Jesus, suffered too, and the thought
of you kept Him going through His sufferings. Now
Jesus is in heaven looking down upon you in your sufferings
with the most compassionate eyes and merciful heart
that there ever was. He is constantly showering you
with the grace to keep going and whispering to you
that someday when you meet him in heaven, He will
combine your suffering to His and give you a joy beyond
all understanding. The best thing about this little
Lukie, is that no one can take this joy away from
I hope and pray
that one day you will read this when you are older
and healthier and know how much love surrounds you
today, this Mother's Day, and always.
Love from the
Oh Blessed Mother,
Today we rejoice
that Our Lord in his agony gave you to us to be our
Blessed Mother. By your intercession with your most
merciful Son, end this nightmare that we are living
through, and if this is not possible, reconcile us
to your Son's Will. Oh Sorrowfull Mother, show us
the depths of your immaculate heart. Oh Queen of Heaven
and Dearest of all Mothers, how beautiful you are!
