A MOTHER'S LOVE


One of the most touching elements of the film "The Passion of the Christ" is the mother-son relationship. Every mother can relate to Mary’s total commitment to her son. Here’s the story of a modern day mother and her love for her son, as told by one member of the staff at Campus Crusade Canada.


"A lady in our church shared on Sunday that when she was 17 she got pregnant and had to give up her son for adoption. She has been praying for him for years and registered to find him a number of years ago. For her 50th birthday her daughter prayed and asked God to help her connect with this son after 33 years. The son had recently bought a computer and registered a willingness to meet his birthmom. Two weeks ago they spoke on the phone for the first time. He flew out to meet her last week. During the week this mom took her son to see The Passion of the Christ. She then led him to the Lord. He went home to his wife and three children and he led his wife to the Lord. This 50 year-old mom is going to meet her son and daughter-in-law and grandchildren this week. The son and family are talking about moving out here to be close to his mother. Praise God!"
