Happy Mother's Day

Prayer of Mothers

"Father in heaven,
grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity
which you have conferred on me.
Let me realize that not even the Angels
have been blessed with such a priviledge -
to share in your creative miracle
and bring new Saints to heaven.

Make me a good mother to all my children
after the example of Mary,
the Mother of your Son.
Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary
I ask your continued blessings on my family.
Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth
and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven."

In spiritual life we remain children; remember that Mary can be your mother if your mother cannot, or ceases to be willing. She teaches us to love Jesus by her witness and is a powerful intercedent. We can talk to her when we need a mom.

God bless all our moms.
