Dear Brothers and Sisters,
In the USA, today, we celebrate “Mother’s Day”. Hopefully, every day is a day on which we honor Mary, our Blessed Mother, and also our Mothers – those who gave us physical birth, as well as those whom God has permitted to be “spiritual” Mothers to us – Godmothers at Baptism who have nurtured our faith, as have sponsors at Confirmation, teachers in Catholic schools or in Parish Schools of Religion, and other friends and relatives who have helped us to grow closer to God.
Lord, bless all our Mothers, living on earth and those who are living now in eternity. I give you thanks for each of them and trust they are with you in eternity where I hope to see them all in Your Glory one day.
Mary, Mother of all, we thank you for all your prayers, and ask you to intercede for all Mothers on earth, that we continually grow in our Love for God and for all those He has brought into our lives.
