Mother’s Day blessing
Loving God, as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children, so you give life and care for your Church.
Bless these women, as we celebrate this day in their honour. May they be strengthened as Christian mothers.
Let the example of their faith and love shine forth. Grant that we, their sons and daughters, may honour and appreciate them with a spirit of profound respect.
May the example of Mary, mother of Jesus, inspire them to live their vocation as Christian mothers and call their children to faith.
Guide and protect them in challenging times and help them to continue to trust in you all the days of their life. Grant this through Christ our Lord.
And a Mother’s Day Reflection.
For our mothers, who have given us life and love, that we may show them reverence and love, and others who show us a mother’s love, we pray to the Lord.
For adoptive mothers and for the women who wish to give birth but experience challenges, that they know your care, we pray to the Lord.
For mothers who have lost a child through death, that their faith may give them hope, and their family and friends support and console them, we pray to the Lord.
For those who wish to serve as mothers, but are not able to do so, that they know your comfort, we pray to the Lord.
For mothers who have died, that God may bring them into the joy of his kingdom, we pray to the Lord.
We celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday May 14.
