Holy Mary, Mother of God:
Bless all mothers, for their unsung daily sacrifices, their common sense, their patient endurance, their love and their joy.
Help us to honor our mothers for that which is most precious and most unique to womanhood: the ability to bring new life into the world.
Look over my sainted mother, who gave me so much more than I was able to give her: unwavering loyalty, a love of music, books, nature, silence and a contemplative heart. She instilled within me a distaste for artifice and small talk while implanting a desire for truth and meaning.
Help all of us women to treat one another as sisters and friends, never as rivals. We pray for all mothers and all children through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
