A Blessing on Mother’s Day
We offer this Blessing to all Mothers both the living and the dead.
Please accept it if you are a Mother, or for you Mother, on
this day when we commemorate and celebrate all Mothers.
Loving God, as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children, so you
watch over your Church. Bless these women, our Mothers, 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
a spirit of profound respect.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.
May Mary, our Blessed Mother, bless and protect us all!
