I would like to wish all our mums a very happy Mother’s Day! There are so many things you do for us and many of them go unnoticed and unappreciated. We are forever grateful for all the love and support you give us. On Thursday night at our Reconciliation Family Faith night we shared this video (featuring the children preparing for the Sacrament of Reconciliation or receiving a blessing). I thought on Mother’s Day it might be nice to share with everyone…
A Prayer for Mothers
We thank you Lord for the great gift of motherhood.
It is within our mother’s womb, that we began life.
It is in her embrace that we have known safety and comfort.
It is through her encouragement that we grow and mature.
Lord, bless our mothers.
Draw close to them and hear their prayers for their children.
Give them the grace of surrendered love –
a love that images the love of our heavenly mother, Mary.
May all mothers find daily
the strength to love generously,
the patience to endure graciously,
and the grace to live their vocation of motherhood joyously.
We ask this through our Lord, Jesus Christ,
Do you have a special message for your mum?
