Happy Mother’s Day from OLOL!

Loving God, as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children, so you give life and care for your Church.
Bless these women, as we celebrate this day in their honor. May they be strengthened as Christian mothers.
Let the example of their faith and love shine forth.
Grant that we, their sons and daughters, may honor and appreciate them with a spirit of profound respect.
May the example of Mary, mother of Jesus, inspire them to live their vocation as Christian mothers and call their children to faith.
Guide and protect them in challenging times and help them to continue to trust in you all the days of their life.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
