Honoring Our Mothers

This weekend we celebrate Mother’s Day. It is a day to think of our mothers and all others who fulfill a nurturing role in our lives. Whether they are still in this world or already in the next, we pray that God may reward them for making his love present in so many special ways. Please join me in praying for all mothers (and others who play a nurturing role), using the words of the Church’s Book of Blessings:

Loving God,

as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children,

so you watch over your Church.

Bless these women,

that they may be strengthened as Christian mothers.

Let the example of their faith and love shine forth.

Grant that we, their sons and daughters,

may honor them always

with a spirit of profound respect.

Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

May God bless all our mothers on their special day and always!

Gratefully Yours,
