Monthly Reflection by George Calleja – April 2019
The 21 March 2019, was the day when my mother departed to heaven and once again met with my dad. A sudden loss to her four children, but mum was spiritually ready for the journey.
When mum departed, she had accomplished what God called her to be… a mother. Till the last moments of her life, through her faith, our 86 year old mum had loved and cared for her children in a true Christian way.
Her only career in her life was of being a full time mother. When dad used to go for work, she would take care of us four children. She made many sacrifices for bringing us up, to educate us, to dress us up, to feed us, to clean the house and above all to bring us up in our Christian faith as Catholics.
When she departed, mum made me think a lot about todays society. Some questions have been coming up to my mind, such as, are todays mothers ready to sacrifice their lives to bring up their children with morals and values of the Christian faith? Are todays mothers spending enough quality time with their children? Are todays mothers being at home with their children and treasuring the moments of being together as a family?
I really hope and pray that todays mothers are living up to their role… of being mothers in a real Christian way. A real mother is to be another Mary in the family.
Thanks mum… for being another Mary in our family.
