Happy MOther's Day
To Mary, our Mother, and our earthly mothers, living and deceased.
A Mothers' Day Prayer
I [we] thank you, Father of us all, for my [our] mother[s].
I thank you that she gave me life and nurtured me all those years. She gave me my faith, helping me to know you and to know Jesus and his ways. She taught me how to love and how to sacrifice for others. She taught me that it was okay to cry and that I should always tell the truth.
Bless her with the graces she needs and which you want to give her today. Help her to feel precious in your eyes today and to know that I love her. Give her strength and courage, compassion and peace.
Bless her this day with your love.
And don't forget to say the Rosary, too. The Blessed Mother is mother of us all!
Definitely make a meal for your mom--brunch or fancy dinner.
Dads, take the kids and buy or make her something very special.
(These have been our Mother's day traditions.)
