For all of our mothers
« on: May 05, 2009, 10:57:53 PM »
As Mother's Day will be upon us this Sunday, let us beseech our Lord that he grant all our mothers not only many years, but also mercy and grant them their requests for salvation and life everlasting.

Lord have mercy!

Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

And for the Mothers who (like mine) have departed this life until we meet again on that Last and Glorious Day, may their memories be eternal and may they be granted rest from their labours and sacrifices.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord have mercy! Blessings to all the wonderful mothers in our midst, our own physical and spiritual mothers, and those mothers who have gone on before us! Thanks to them all for their sacrificial love and goodness.
