Almighty God, creator of all life, we have been marvelously made and knit together in our mother’s wombs. We thank you for the gift of motherhood. For some of us this gift nurtured us and helped us to grow; taught us patience, understanding and what love meant. For some of us this gift was not nurturing and loving. Help us to be thankful for what our mothers gave us and to forgive that which was lacking in them. May all mothers model the love and understanding of your Divine Son’s mother, Mary. May our Lord Jesus keep them close to him and provide for them as he did for his own mother from the cross. May the Holy Spirit grant them wisdom in mothering and peace in their lives. Amen.
