Prayer for Mothers

 Children lead the following responsory

  1. For the care of mothers;
    All       Thanks be to God.
  2. For their patience when tested;
    All       Thanks be to God.
  3. For their love when tired;
    All       Thanks be to God.

At the end of the distribution of flowers we all say this prayer. Everyone sits except mothers, who are asked to remain standing.

All:

Thank you God for the love of our mothers:
Thank you God for their care and concern;
Thank you God for the joys they have shared with us;
Thank you God for the pains they have borne for us;
Thank you God for all that they give us.

We make this prayer through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
