A Mother's Day prayer
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.
