Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.
Prayer for Every Need of Motherhood
Cherished Virgin, heaven’s queen,
Chosen before all women to be the mother of
The Son of God, Mary, my mother,
Who in your maternity so sanctified the state
Of holy motherhood,
Imploringly I come to you;
Humbly I beseech you;
Confidently I trust in you.
I know that, by your powerful intercession,
You can help me in my need.
In you I take refuge, dear Virgin,
Poor and needy, I turn devoutly to you
And place confidently in your hands.
Accept my humble trust, hear my petitions,
And come to my aid, dear Mother of Mothers.
Behold the handmaid of the Lord;
Be it done to me according to your word!
(From the book Mothers’ Manual,
by A. Francis Coomes, S.J.)
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
