On October 4 at all masses we will give a special blessing to our parents who are expecting a baby.
A Prayer for Expectant Mothers
GOD OF INFINITE GOODNESS, WATCH OVER EXPECTANT MOTHERS
AS THEY AWAIT THE BIRTH OF THEIR CHILD.
Grant these women confidence and strength to dispel their anxiety and
fear. Bless them with the courage and faith of Mary, always listening to your
will and trusting in your loving care. As they prepare to bring new life into
the world, grace them with good health and great joy. We look to you and
your Son, Jesus Christ, as a sign of mercy and joy. We ask this through the
intercession of Our Lady of Lourdes in the name of your Son, Jesus and
the Holy Spirit, now and forever.
