Father John Misty’s Catholic Prayer for Mother’s Day
Father John Misty takes a moment to reflect on the blessings he has received from his mother, and offers a prayer for mothers everywhere on Mother’s Day. “I don’t think I could be more grateful for my mother,” Father John Misty says. “She was always there for me, no matter what. She would cook me dinner when I didn’t want to go to school, she would pick me up from the detention hall, she would listen to me whine about my math homework. And then later she would come into my room at 2 in the morning and tell me that sacrificing everything for her children was worth it because it made them who they are today.”
Happy Mother’s Day! Today, we want to offer our thoughts and prayers to all the mothers out there.

This feast celebrates Mary’s divine assumption into Heaven after giving birth to Jesus Christ and marks the start of her patronage over Christian women.

May they be supported in their role as caregivers and protectors of families everywhere.
