Many, many thank yous to all the moms for filling in for me, when I dropped out of the classes I volunteered to lead. I tried to uphold my last remaining responsibility, Coffee Lady, as best I could. On Wednesdays, I would think, "this is what it has come to, at least I bring the coffee!"
In honor of our mother, Mary:
Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee. (Luke 1:28)
Blessed art thou amongst women and
blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. (Luke 1:42)
Holy Mary, Mother of God (Luke 1:43),
pray for us sinners (Acts 8:24),
now and at the hour of our death (Luke 18:1).
Pray for us, O Holy Mother of Good Remedy.
That we may deepen our dedication to thy Son,
and make the world alive with His Spirit.
