Today we honor all who accept the responsibility of motherhood in its many manifestations. All our Sunday Masses are being offered for the intentions of our mothers, living and deceased.
PRAYER FOR OUR MOTHERS
Bless our Mothers, O Lord, and comfort them in special ways on this Mother's Day.
Strengthen their hearts to remain strong in selflessly loving.
Help us to honor the gift of life they gave us. From them we first experienced the gift of love as it is meant tot be - unconditional, everlasting and all-embracing.
Give our mothers a sense of peace at the end of love-filled days; give them a sense of hope when they are discouraged.
Most of all, on this Mother's Day, give our mothers the graces they most need and desire.
We ask you this, in the name of Jesus, our Lord. Amen.
