Early Christians in England celebrated the fourth Sunday of Lent to honor the Virgin Mary, Mother of Christ ... and also, "Mother Church." During this period, people commonly returned to their local church or catherdral - their "mother church." Those who did so were said to have gone "a-mothering." In the 1600's a clerical decree in England broadened the celebration from one focused on the church and the Virgin Mary, to include real Mothers, referring to the occasion as Mothering Day.
