The Roman Catholic Church in The Bahamas is part of the worldwide Roman Catholic Church, under the spiritual leadership of the Pope. The diocese was elevated to a full diocese, as the diocese of Nassau in June 1960. On June 22nd, 1999, the diocese was again elevated as the new Archdiocese of Nassau.

A very Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers of our great Bahamas especially those within the faithful community of the Archdiocese of Nassau.

As I sit and look out the window I can just imagine all of the festivities that will be taking place today on this special day for our Mothers. What a beautiful day it is outside.

Growing up I remembered thinking how difficult it must be being a mother as I watched my mother take care of me and my siblings; take charge of the house and being a great wife to my father. I truly confirmed my belief when I got married and had a family of my own.

I always tell my wife how much I appreciate everything she does for our family as it is a very difficult task; especially as a working mother. I would prefer to work 24 hours a day than to fill the role of a mother. She is truly God's gift to families. I thank God for my wife and mother of my children daily.

Remember not just on Mother's Day but everyday that your mother is a God's sent blessing. God saw it fit to send his son here on earth through the means of a mother, "Mary". As he is God, he could have just as easy descend him here on earth as an adult, but he saw fit to give a special role to Mary, a common girl who we should all be thankful that she accepted God's invitation to be the Mother of our Messiah.

Do not let the day go by without thanking your Mother for being your Mother and for giving you life.

  1. Hey Kevan;

    I just read your mothers day article, and sounds like you are right on target. I am in awe of mothers in general, who love, unconditionally, forgive unconditionally, protect, guard and guide their children unconditionally. I was, as you, very fortunate to be gifted with parents that were there, ALWAYS, through thick & thin. A shoulder to cry on, the loudest cheer leaders during school events, the best cooks in the world, every thing we wore, ironed, and clean...Moms are truely a blessing...however, my dad was also a large rock as well. Keep up the great work my friend.
