Mother’s Day Novena # 1 (9 days before the Feast)

The Novena consist of 9 days of prayers.

Most Gracious Heavenly Father,
We thank you for our mothers
to whom you have entrusted the care of every precious human life.
Grant that every woman may come to understand
the full meaning of that blessing.
Watch over every mother who is with child.
Give her courage in times of fear,
understanding in times of doubt,
and hope in times of trouble.
Grant her joy in the birth of her child.
We beseech you to send Your Holy Spirit, the Comforter,
to all mothers who sorrow for children that have died.
Help grieving mothers to rely on your tender mercy
and fatherly love for all your children.
We ask your blessing on all those
to whom you have entrusted motherhood.
May they ever follow the example of Mary,
mother of Our Lord Jesus,
and imitate her fidelity, her humility,
and her self-giving love.

We ask this through your beloved son,
Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Amen.
