Thank You and God Bless You!
Here is a useful question to help you to examine your conscience. To consider…
Have I used God’s name in vain by way of profanity? Do I make a habit of using
God’s name or the name of Jesus Christ when I am angry or cursing someone?
Do you think He deserves to be treated so callously by using His name in anger?
Forgive us, Lord, for the way we disrespect you - for our lack of reverence in your holy presence. We forget who we are and who YOU ARE. Our God is a God of Love and Tenderness, Merciful to the “enth” degree. He loves us just as we are. He created us.
He gave us every gift we have. We are your beloved children and you are our
loving maker. You made us, we belong to you.

Prayer to the Mother of the Lord for all Mothers
Mary, on this day when we honor all mothers, we turn to you. We thank the Lord whom you serve for the great gift of motherhood. Never has it been known that anyone who sought your intercession was left unaided by grace.
Dear Mother, thank
you for your "Yes" to the invitation of the
earth and changed human history. You opened yourself to God's word and the Word
was made flesh and dwelt among us.
Dear mother, intercede for all of our mothers. Ask your Divine Son to give them the grace of surrendered love so that they could join with you in giving their own"Fiat."
May they find daily
say yes to the call to the sacrificial love- the very heart of the vocation of
motherhood. May their love and
witness be a
source of great
for all of us called to follow your Son.
On this Mother’s day, Mother of the Word Incarnate, pray for us who have recourse to you... In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Happy Mother’s Day!
