Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers Day! First and foremost to Our Mother in the order of Grace, the queen of heaven, Mary. Next to our mother in the order of adoption, our mother Church. And of course to all of our earthly mothers. I pray for motherhood today, authentic motherhood, based on the true understanding of what it means to be a Daughter of God living in Jesus Christ and inspired by the Holy Spirit. Here is a great prayer for the intercession of St. Monica.

Prayer To St. Monica For Mothers
Exemplary Mother of the great Augustine,
you perseveringly pursued your wayward son
not with wild threats
but with prayerful cries to heaven.
Intercede for all mothers in our day
so that they may learn to draw their children to God.
Teach them how to remain close to their children,
even the prodigal sons and daughters
who have sadly gone astray.

Amen.
