*Call to Worship:
L: For our mothers, who have given us life and love, that we may show them reverence and love,
P: we pray to the Lord…
L: For mothers who have lost a child through death, that their faith may give them hope, and their family and friends support and console them,
P: we pray to the Lord…
L: For women, though without children of their own, who like mothers have nurtured and cared for us,
P: we pray to the Lord…
L:  For mothers, who have been unable to be a source of strength, who have not responded to their children and have not sustained their families,
P:  we pray to the Lord…

Opening Prayer:
Loving God, as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children, so you watch over your Church.  Bless these women, that they may be strengthened as Christian mothers.  Let the example of their faith and love shine forth.  Grant that we, their sons and daughters, may honor them always with a spirit of profound respect.  Grant this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
