You might call her ‘Mother’, ‘Mom’, ‘Ma’ or ‘madre’; tots call her ‘Mommy’;Mum’ in the UK,

‘Moms’, in slang, so called by a ‘tween; may be called mummy (not just Halloween);

In Latin she’s ‘Mater’, she’s ‘mor’ in Norway; ‘mutter’ in German, Portuguese call her ‘Mae’,

She’s ‘Mere’ out in France, ‘Muter’, Israel;  ‘haha’ in Japan (where’s she’s funny as well?)

Let’s reflect for a moment on the Saint who started it all.
