Happy Mother’s Day

To all our mums we say Happy Mother’s Day today. In Ireland it always falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent and I know it is a different date in other countries. But we are all in agreement on one thing all our Mums are very special!!!




As we celebrate St. Patrick this weekend the following St Patrick’s Prayer is most appropriate

Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,

Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,

Christ on my right, Christ on my left,

Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,

Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,

Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,

Christ in the eye that sees me,

Christ in the ear that hears me.

We pray for God’s strength to help us,
God’s wisdom to guide us,
God’s eye to be our vision,
God’s ear for our hearing,
God’s word for our speech,
God’s hand to protect us,
God’s pathway before us,
God’s shield for our shelter,
