For Mothers Day, Sunday, May 8th, 2011
Today is Mother's Day, designated by Congress in 1914.
Thank You, Holy Father,
for Your special gift of mothers;
for the example of Your unconditional love they share with their children.
Lord, today we pray You will protect and guide mothers everywhere;
that You will grant them Your wisdom in loving and teaching their children.
Today, may children everywhere remember the warm caresses and whispers in the night;
the tears dried and Band-Aids, the peach cobbler, the laughter;
and the blood curdling scream, No! at the brink of danger.
Thank You for the mothers who played with us, taught us, nurtured us,
fed us, listened to us and tried to understand us.
Today, may we remember Mom's beauty when we were young;
and her loveliness discovered as we aged.
Lord, today draw especially close the mothers who are alone,
for whatever reason;
and grant them Your comfort, Your pleasure, Your peace.
And, Lord, for children who are alone, because of distance, death, or indifference,
may good memories flood their minds.
And if there is not a good memory,
may forgiveness burst forth from their hearts
and revive in them long lost joy.
Today as we honor, celebrate, or simply reflect on the woman who gave us birth,or who adopted us into her heart.
We thank You, Lord, for life,
and for Mothers everywhere
In Jesus name,
2 cloves garlic, crushed
