Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

God, we remember with gratitude the women who gave us life, assured us and nurtured us,  and recall that our mothers represent Your living, loving, and ever-present embrace. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us. Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
