ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Speaking to thousands of people gathered in St.

Peter's Square for his Sunday (May 12) address, Pope Francis marked Mother's Day by offering his special greeting to mothers around the world.

''I would like to send a warm greeting to all the mothers, thanking them for their precious work in raising children and protecting the value of the family", the pontiff said.

The leader of the world's 1.2 billion Catholics also remembered the mothers "who look down at us from heaven" and noted that Monday (May 13) will be the feast of Our Lady of Fatima.
