Mother’s Day is that heartwarming occasion when all of us stop to say thank you to our mothers, acknowledging the sacrifices they have made and tell them what they mean to us. Every loving son or daughter offers prayers to his or her mom on this day. It is also the time to thank God for his wonderful gift, to thank God for creating moms, to seek blessings from God for your mom.
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 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 angel which brought heaven to 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 strength to 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 inspiration 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.
