A Prayer for All Mothers
O God the Father, Creator of all Life, Lifespring of all Mothers and Fathers, you who chose Mary to be the Mother of your Divine Son, bless now with your love and protection all Mothers, that they may treasure the lives and spiritual well being of their children.
O God the Son, Jesus our Lord and Redeemer, you who gave us your Mother as our own Mother, bless my own Mother, she who gave me the great gift of life that I may continue to be a loving and grateful child.
O God the Holy Spirit, poured out on Mary and on all followers of Jesus, bless all who have had a mother’s influence on my own life, bless all those close to me who are mothers, and especially bless all those who carry life within expectant as mothers.

Those wishing to take the Holy Eucharist to their sick loved ones must do so with a pyx.
They must also have the pyx burse/ purse hanging down their necks for reverently placing and taking the Eucharist.
Without the pyx and the pyx burse/purse we will be unable to give the Eucharist for people in this circumstance.
