On New year`s day , the octave day of Christmas, the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Holy Mother of God, the divine and virginal motherhood of the Blessed Virgin
Mothers Day is a time to stop and reflect on all the love
our mothers have shown us through our lives. Sweet and
Blessed Mother, guide our mothers that they too may lead us
to Your Son, just as you show us.
May they imitate Your love and devotion. May we in return also be loving,
patient, understanding and supportive to our mothers.
Blessed Mother, we pray for all mothers – our own mums, our
aunts, our grandmothers… the living and the departed.
Hail Mary, full of grace the Lord is with thee. Blessed art
thou amongst women, Blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now
and at the hour of our death.
