Bless the Mothers of Lumen Christi!
As we approach Mother’s Day this Sunday, we recognize the tremendous spirit of the mothers of Lumen Christi. With quiet grace and dedication, they sponsor spaghetti dinners, sew costumes, paint sets, decorate dances, serve lunch, help with homework, count raffle tickets, design centerpieces, wash uniforms, and pray for the success of our students and school.
On this day, let us offer a prayer, instead, of gratitude and blessing for our mothers!
O almighty and eternal God, Lord of both the living and the dead, Your tender mercy embraces all men foreknown to be Yours by faith and a good life. Through the intercession of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary our Mother, and of all the saints, grant Your merciful pardon to all mothers for whom we pray, whether they still are living in this world or have departed from this flesh into the world to come. Especially, dear Lord, grant the requests I now make of You for my own beloved mother. (From Catholic.org)
