Happy Mother's Day!
A hymn we sang at Mass today:
On this day, O beautiful Mother,
On this day we give thee our love.
Near thee, Madonna, fondly we hover,
Trusting thy gentle care to prove.
On this day we ask to share,
Dearest Mother, thy sweet care;
Aid us ere our feet astray
Wander from thy guiding way.
Queen of angels, deign to hear
Lisping children's humble prayer;
Young hearts gain, O virgin pure,
Sweetly to thyself allure.
Happy Mother's Day to all mothers! Let's remember to wish our Blessed Mother a Happy Mother's Day, too, and ask her to help us in our vocations as mothers, to find patience, joy, and peace in the gift of motherhood we have been given.
