Sixth Sunday of Easter
“This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” - Jn 15:12-13
From Deacon Dick
For Our Mothers Both Living and Deceased
Today we celebrate Mother’s Day in gratitude for all those who fulfill the role of mother … birth mothers, godmothers, grandmothers, adoptive mothers, foster mothers, and all women who nourish and nurture our children. We suggest that this blessing be given by the eldest child or the father of the family.
Blessing Prayer for Mother’s Day
God of Love, we ask that you listen to this prayer.
God of Holy People, of Sarah, Ruth and Rebekah;
God of holy Elizabeth, mother of John,
of Holy Mary, Mother of Jesus,
bend down your ear to our request
and bless the mother of our family.
Bless her with the strength of your Spirit,
she who taught her children how to stand and how to walk.
Bless her with the melody of Your love,
she who has shared how to speak, how to sing, and how to pray to You.
Bless her with a place at Your eternal dinner table,
she who has fed and nurtured the life that was formed within her
while still helpless but embraced in your love.
Bless her today, now, in this lifetime, with good things, with health.
Bless her with joy, love, and laughter and pride in her children
and surround her with many good friends.
May she who carried life in her womb
be carried one day to Your divine embrace:
There, for all eternity, to rejoice with her family and friends.
This blessing and all graces, we pray.
descend upon the mother of our family:
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
