Lets all join in prayers of thanksgiving for the gift of our mothers and our motherhood today:
Father in heaven,
grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you conferred on me.
Let me realize that not even the angels have been blessed with such a privilege to share in your creative miracle and bring new saints to heaven.
Make me a good mother to my children after the example of Mary,
the mother of your Son.
Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary,
I ask your continued blessings on my family.
Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven.
