A MOTHER'S LOVE

From the May 2006 issue of The Christian Science Journal


SHE WAS BRIGID TO CELTIC EUROPE, Cybele to the Romans, and Rhea to the ancient Greeks. She was the pagan mother goddess—celebrated by pre-Christian civilizations in Europe long before Mother's Day, as we know it, gained official recognition in the United States in 1914.
