We are quickly closing in on Mother's Day. I have written before that I have very little connection to my biological mother. In fact, I have not seen her or spoken to her in close to ten years. That very fact makes me feel closer than ever to Mary as my Mother and the Mother of the entire Church. I encourage all of you who have something going on in their lives or are seeking a deeper relationship with God to say the following prayer asking for her intercession. Her prayers will bring you much closer to Christ her Son then you could ever imagine.
Queen of heaven, rejoice. Alleluia. The Son whom you were privileged to bear, Alleluia, has risen as he said, Alleluia. Pray to God for us, Alleluia. Rejoice and be glad, Virgin Mary, Alleluia. For the Lord has truly risen, Alleluia.
O God, it was by the Resurrection of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, that you brought joy to the world. Grant that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, his Mother, we may attain the joy of eternal life. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Happy Mother's Day to all you Mothers out there, now including my wife!
