Happy Mothers' 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.
Amen.

Today we pray for:
those who are grieving the loss of their mother,
those who never knew their biological mother, and now yearn for her
those who have experienced the wonder of an adopted mother's love
the families separated by war or conflict
mothers of children with special needs
mothers who must raise their children alone
mothers who suffer illness
and mothers who nurse sick children or family members.

Lord, please send them special blessings.
And our special greetings and fond rememberances to all the mothers we know!
