Mother's Day blessing
Loving God, as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children, so you watch over your Church. 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 honour them always with a spirit of profound respect. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Those flowers at the foot of Mary, Mother of God and our Mother, are for all mums as the prayers rise to heaven for you.
