HAPPY MOTHERS DAY
To all the women across the world and across the ages who have been blessed to collaborate with God in bringing children into this world, we kiss your hand with reverence and gratitude on this Mothers Day.
To all mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers and great great grandmothers, we salute you for the many sacrifices you have made for us throughout your lives.
On this special day we remember our mothers and mother-figures who have left this world. We shall place flowers on your tomb today and ask you to continue praying for us from Heaven.
Though it is a particularly painful day for mothers whose children died before birth or as babies, as infants, as children, as teenagers or as adults, we pray that God eases your pain through the intercessions of the Mother of our Lord whose Son died on the Cross for the salvation of the world.
To all the women whose circumstances did not lend themselves to the opportunity of childbirth, we recognize in you the beauty and strength of femininity that God has given you to love your adoptive children, your nieces and nephews and all the children of the world with the power of your beautiful souls.
MOTHERS OF THE WORLD, ON THIS DAY WE ESPECIALLY ASK YOU TO FORGIVE US FOR HURTING YOU OR DISAPPOINTING YOU IN ANY WAY.
