Mothers’ Day Blessing
(Adapted from Edward Hayes
Prayers for a Domestic Church)
God of love, you who make us Holy by your sacred Presence,
Listen to this prayer brought to you by your holy people.
Bend down your ear to this request and
Bless the mothers who are gathered virtually this day.
Bless them with strength and courage,
With faith and with hope,
With peace and with the melody of your love,
With eternal life and a place at your eternal dinner table.
Bless them today, in this lifetime with good things:
With health, joy, friendship, laughter,
And with pride in their children and grand children.
Surround them with friends.
May they who have given life and nurtured life so generously,
Be carried one day to your divine embrace to rejoice with family and friends.
May this blessing and all your graces we pray,
Descend upon the mothers of our families
In the name of the Father,
And of the Son,
And of the Holy Spirit.
