Loving God,as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children, so You watch over Your Church. Please bless these women,that they may be strengthened as Christian mothers. Let the example of their faith, and love, shine forth. Grant that we, their sons and daughters, may honor them always, with profound respect and abiding love. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
“Every mother is like Moses. She does not enter the promised land. She prepares a world she will not see.” Pope Paul VI (1897-1978)
