Happy Mother's Day

Today, as we celebrate Mother’s Day let us take a moment to pause and pray for all Mothers, and special women in our lives who we consider Mothers.

A Prayer from Pope Francis in honor of Mother’s Day

Blessed Virgin Mary of Fatima, with renewed gratitude for your motherly presence, we join in the voice of all generations that call you blessed.

We celebrate in you the great works of God, who never tires of lowering himself in mercy over humanity, afflicted by evil and wounded by sin, to heal and to save it.

Accept with the benevolence of a Mother this act of entrustment that we make in faith today, before this your image, beloved to us.

We are certain that each one of us is precious in your eyes and that nothing in our hearts has estranged you.

May that we allow your sweet gaze to reach us and the perpetual warmth of your smile.

—from Mother Mary: Inspiring Words from Pope Francis
