Today’s Blessing Prayer: Sunday greetings and Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers! I hope your day is starting off well. The sun is out here in Lake Placid, New York but I don’t know for how long.
First, I would like to wish a very Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers and remember in a special way all mothers who have passed way, especially my own mother. Mothers touch our lives throughout the years whether they are with us or with us in spirit. I would also like to remember expectant mothers as they prepare and wait for new life.
I hope all of you will have a great day and that you will get the chance to honor your mother and all the mothers who have touched your life in some way. I always find it a special honor to remember my own mother as I celebrate mass and I will most happy to do that today.
My prayer of blessing today is that you will have a great Mother’s Day touched by the presence of God and if you are traveling today you will do so safely. May all your encounters with others and your time alone today be rich in the joy of God grace and love. May God’s blessing be upon all mothers especially those who are expecting and may we celebrate the gifts that all mothers offer us and touch our lives with today in a very special way. May God bless this day and may it be a day of blessings that will help us to encounter the joy of life, especially the joy mothers bring into our lives! Peace in Christ’s Passion and Joy in the Risen Lord…Fr. Paul
