Mother Mary

Mother Mary


When we’re sad or lonely, who better to turn to than our universal mother? Mary can feel the ripples of pain in our hearts and is ready to guide us to her son.


Dear Mary,
Like a woeful child,
I am in need
of your motherly care.
Wrap your arms around me for comfort,
dry my tears,
take me by the hand,

and lead me to your Son,
the source of

all that is good.
For only he
can cast out the shadows
of my troubled heart.



Not all of us are mothers, but we can still give maternal care to those who are hurting. Share this prayer with the people in your life who could use a word of encouragement.

Blessed Mary, our Universal Mother, bring peace to our nation and ask your son, Jesus, for his healing graces. God bless America.
