Saturday of Our Lady

Mother Mary,
as you carried your Divine Child
in your womb you rejoiced'and glorified the Lord.

Touch with pity
the hearts of those women
pregnant in our world today
who think of murder,
not motherhood.

Help them to see
that the child they carry
is made in God's image--
as well as theirs--
made for eternal life.

Dispel their fear
and selfishness and
give them true womanly hearts
to love their babies
and give them birth
and all the needed care
that a mother alone can give.

Mary, Mother of Christ
and of us, show us all one day
the blessed fruit of your womb,
(From "Queen of Heaven" prayer book)

Peace be with you!
Rosemarie, ocds
