In many ways, the battle between the culture of life and the culture of death is a battle over mothers, and how we understand their role in God's plan. As we pray this prayer, then, let us renew our resolve to strengthen, bless, and thank all mothers as they embrace the awesome vocation of accepting and nurturing new life.

A Prayer for Mothers

God of tender love and life, 
You compared your love for humanity 
To the love a mother has for her own child. 

You are the Lord and Giver of Life, 
And you knit each of us together 
In our mother's womb. 

You provide for the world 
The example of Mary, your own mother, 
Who said yes to life amid her confusion and surprise. 

We thank you, then, for our mothers. 
Though human, they are also a reflection of you, Lord God. 
They are your gift to us. 

We pray for all mothers today. 
May they realize the greatness of their vocation 
And have the strength to live it without fear. 
Forgive their sins, and keep their eyes raised up to you. 

To those who still make this earthly journey with us, 
Give us the grace to love them as we should; 
And to those whom you have called from this life, 
Give a special place of honor in your Kingdom of endless life. 

We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Oración para las madres

Dios de vida y amor generoso,
Tú comparaste tu amor por la humanidad
con el amor de una madre hacia su hijo.

Eres el Señor y dador de vida que
nos une a todos en el seno de nuestra Madre.

Tú le brindaste al mundo
el ejemplo de María, tu propia madre,
que dijo sí a la vida, aún entre confusión y sorpresa.

Por eso te agradecemos por las madres de este mundo,
que en su humanidad también son un reflejo de Ti, Señor Dios.


Son Tu regalo para nosotros.

Hoy oramos por todas ellas.
Para que puedan darse cuenta de la grandeza de su vocación
y tengan la fortaleza para vivir sin miedo.
Perdona sus pecados y mantén sus ojos puestos en Tí.

Danos la gracia de amar como deberíamos
a aquellas que aún están en camino aquí en la tierra,
Y a las que ya han dejado esta vida 
dales un lugar de honor especial en tu Reino de vida eterna,


Junto a Ti, padre nuestro.

Te lo pedimos por Jesucristo, nuestro Señor.

Amén.
