Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day

To all my bloggy friends that are mothers. We are all mothers according to our lord. May you be blessed with lots of love.
I would like to share the Franciscan Prayer for Mothers

Holy God, Creator of all life, You compare Your love for Your people to the love a mother for her children. Through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, abundantly bless my own dear mother.

She taught me how to stand and to walk; Give her now the strength of Your Spirit. She showed me how to speak and to pray; Surround her now with the sound of Your voice. She nurtured me and loved me into life; Tenderly touch her now with Your joy and peace.

Grant her the serenity and rich fulfillment of a job well done, a life well lived. Forgive all her mistakes and frustrations. Reward all her sacrifices and self-giving. May she, who carried life in her womb, be gently welcomed into Your Divine Embrace, to rejoice for all eternity with everyone she loved and cared for.

AMEN

Have a blessed day!
