Loving Mary, Mother of Jesus and our mother too.
Thank you for always saying yes to God’s call.
We praise Jesus, the fruit of your yes.
Bless all women who are with child.
Help them see the great gift they carry.
May their response like yours be a yes to life.
Fill their hearts with joy and peace.
Walk with them as their child comes to birth.
Like you Mary, may mothers everywhere
ponder and treasure this gift in their hearts.
- A Columban Missionary
