Take time to thank mothers, and women in general. Mothers have still have a great role in our society not for just bringing forth life but also for nurturing that life and helping their children grow. In the Orthodox world the faith of the Church is passed on by our mothers and we use as a great example Mary the Mother of Jesus. Pray to Mary for guidance and she will show you the way.
A special prayer to those women who find themselves in the family way rather unexpectedly. Hang in there and bring to life that life you are carrying. If you do not want to raise the child you now carry someone will. There are many parents who long to have a child and cannot so bring your baby to this world and let someone care for it. Abortion is not the answer!
Blessings in a special way to single moms. You have the hardest of all jobs being mom and dad to your children. I pray for you that God’s blessings will come upon you for you chose life and not death.
