Mothers, Artificial Intelligence, Politicians and Communion (May 8)

In the U.S., pandemic health and safety restrictions are loosening and we are likely to see on Mothers’ Day 2021 a more intense celebration of mothers than usual. After the challenges of the last year there is renewed appreciation for that special role mothers play. Register contributor Erika Ahern and our Senior Editor Joan Frawley Desmond join in a conversation on how mothers weathered the pandemic. And then, we get an update from the Register’s Alyssa Murphy on the stories you don’t want to miss from NCRegister.com, including a look at artificial intelligence and politicians and Communion.

Nicolas Poussin, “Sts. Peter and John Healing the Lame Man,” 1655 — “I have neither silver nor gold, but what I do have I give you: in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazorean, rise and walk.” ... He leaped up, stood, and walked around, and went into the Temple with them, walking and jumping and praising God.” [Acts 3:6, 8].

No Reason for Being Sad

“For man was made an intelligent and free member of society by God who created him, but even more important, he is called as a son to commune with God and share in his happiness.” (Gaudium et Spes, No. 21)
