Thank you 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 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 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 Mothers 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.

A very Happy Mother's Day to my own Mother and Mother-in-Law, as well to all mothers reading this today!

"May Mary stand beside you and may God Bless you all for the endless hours of love you've shown in so many ways!"


  1. Happy Mother's day to one of the best mothers I know!!

    That was a beautiful prayer to our Blessed Mother. Thank you for sharing it.

    How did you get on that God Tube thing? Which baby is that? Cool!!

  2. Thank you both!

    Ah! You noticed!

    A friend of ours put that video together and emailed me the link :)


    That was taken last June, right after Snuggles birth. I'm not crazy about the photo of myself, but like Marc said when I complained "Come on you had just given birth...." I guess I had! :) I do love how the baby is getting ready to grab his daddy's finger! That part is so sweet!

  3. Happy Mother's Day, Jessica!

    I am going to try and watch the video now. If my youngest will let me.
