“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
1 Corinthians 13:13
As we honor and celebrate the mothers in our lives, let us also remember the special place that the Blessed Mother has in our faith. She can help us find and say yes to God’s calling in our own lives.
Let us remind all mothers who are struggling with providing the necessities for her family that the pastoral services of Catholic Charities programs, such as Regina Maternity Services and our parish outreaches are sources that can provide the care and food that can assist in helping their family to thrive. Your support of the Catholic Ministries Appeal helps us to continue to Build a Community of Faith, Hope and Love.
On this special day, Mother’s Day,
we ask you, Lord, to bless and protect all mothers.
We ask you to encourage, guide and strengthen all mothers.
Whether they be pregnant, have young children
or even be grandmothers,
Whether they be godmothers or motherly guardians,
Bless them all their days.
Thank you, Lord, for the gift of Motherhood
and for the blessing it bestows on us all.
Through the intercession of St. Ann, mother of Mary,
And through the intercession of the Blessed Mother,
mother of our Lord and us all, Bless and protect all mothers
on this special day. Amen.
