Today we offer special prayers of thanksgiving for those who are mothers, grandmothers and all women who play a significant role in the faith formation of their families.
She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs at the days to come.
She opens her mouth in wisdom, and on her tongue is kindly counsel.
Her children rise up and praise her;
“Many are the women of proven worth, but you have excelled them all.”
Charm is deceptive and beauty fleeting; the woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. (selected from Proverbs:31)
