Resurrection-St. Paul School
Encounter Christ's Presence - Year of the Eucharist
May 8, 2022
Dear RSPS Families,
On behalf of the RSPS Faculty and Staff, we want to wish all of our Mothers a very Happy Mothers Day! We are looking forward to spending time with you in the morning this week for our annual "Mom's Morning" event.
Please join us in prayer as we celebrate the strong and wonderful mothers in our lives.
A Prayer in Gratitude for Our Mothers
Good and Gentle God,
We pray in gratitude for our mothers and for all the women of theory who have joined with you in the wonder of bringing forth new life. You who became human through a woman, grant to all mothers the courage they need to face the uncertain future that life with children always brings.
Give them the strength to live and to be loved in return, not perfectly, but humanly.
Give them the faithful support of husband, family and friends as they care for the physical and spiritual growth of their children.
Give them joy and delight in their children to sustain them through the trials of motherhood. Most of all, give them the wisdom to turn to you for help when they need it most.
