Pope Francis had a special greeting for "moms" on Sunday, which is observed as Mothers' Day in many countries throughout the world. 

"Today being the day dedicated to moms in many countries, a round of applause for moms!" the Pope said at the conclusion of his remarks at the day's Regina Coeli. 

"I want to greet all moms, thanking them for their care of families," he said. "I remember, too, the moms who are looking upon us from heaven, and continue to keep us safe with their prayers."

Pope Francis noted that Sunday is the feast of Our Lady of Fatima. "Let us pray to our heavenly Mom, who today, May 13th, with the title Our Lady of Fatima, helps us to continue the journey."
