The following prayer is from Catholic Online. Click the link to see the original page.

Mary, on this day when we honor all mothers, we turn to you. We thank the Lord whom you serve for the great gift of motherhood. Never has it been known that anyone who sought your intercession was left unaided by grace. Dear Mother, thank you for your “Yes” to the invitation of the angel which brought heaven to earth and changed human history. You opened yourself to God’s word and the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.

mothers-day-48957_640Dear mother, intercede for all of our mothers. Ask your Divine Son to give them the grace of surrendered love so that they could join with you in giving their own. May they find daily strength to say yes to the call to the sacrificial love- the very heart of the vocation of motherhood. May their love and witness be a source of great inspiration for all of us called to follow your Son.

On this Mothers day, Mother of the Word Incarnate, pray for us who have recourse to you.

In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Yellow rose in garden of Notre Dame CenterHappy Mother’s Day to all of our moms, grandmothers, mothers-to-be, and all those women who treat everyone they meet with motherly love and compassion!

I encourage all of us on this special day to take a few minutes away from the normal hustle and bustle of life to thank in word or thought our moms and/or women who have been like moms to us, living and deceased, for all that has been possible in our lives because of them. How much laughter has been shared? How many tears wiped away? How many school projects cheered on? How often did mom “save the day” when all looked dark and grim? How much time did mom give me, time that could have been spent in so many other ways?  In his book, The Little Prince, Saint Exupery writes: “It’s the time you’ve wasted on your rose that makes your rose so important.” In one way or another, our moms gave us time, love, and nurturing, treating us as beautiful roses in their personal gardens. This is important to remember and celebrate. And if our moms are already resting in eternity, their rest is probably filled with the work of taking care of us!

Even if we do not have a close relationship with our biological moms, Jesus gave us His from the cross:  “Behold your Mother.” This is perhaps one of the greatest signs of God’s love for us!  Let us ask Mary, our Mother, to guide and protect all mothers on the continuing journey!
