Mother of Our Saviour

For Each Day

Blessed Father,

No one woman has stood taller than the mother of our Saviour.  She disdained this world and accepted humility as her way. She set aside her own dreams and followed a vision.

Lord, give those of us who are mothers to Your children Mary’s peacefulness and passion. Grant us patience of their foibles, and of our own fragility. Teach us, Lord, to put down our own ambitions and longings for a false stability and send us out in servitude to Your Son.

May we always honour she who bore a starry crown even on earth, and whose blood is the blood of Jesus.
