13 May – Wishing all the Mothers a very Blessed and Happy Mother’s Day
I extend my wishes for a Blessed and Happy Mothers’ Day to all mothers who labour unceasingly, that their children gain eternal joy in Heaven and most especially offer thanks and praise to the Holy Trinity for the greatest creature ever conceived, the Great Mother of Our Saviour, Mary Most Holy!
Of her we can never say enough, well enough, often enough, for not only is every day Mary’s Mother’s Day, as it should be but because we, her spiritual children, have learned the lesson, from sitting on her lap in the recitation of the Hail Mary, that as she is our true Mother, every day is also our day, her children, the children of God and the siblings of her Divine Son.
To our Holy Mother of us all, we pray:
Mary, on this day, when we honour 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.
Dear 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 “Fiat.”
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.
God Bless Mothers on this Mothers day,
Mother of the Word Incarnate,
pray for us who have recourse to you.
In the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
