1 Timothy 3:3-13

3Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

4One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

5For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

6Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.

7Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

8Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;

9Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.

10And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless.

11Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.

12Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.

13For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.

Prayer of the Day

Prayer for mothers


We thank you for our mothers , to whom you have entrusted them with the precious care of human life since its inception.

You have given women the ability to participate with you in the creation of new life. Make every woman can come to understand the full meaning of this blessing.

Look at every mother who is expecting a child, strengthens her faith in Your fatherly care and love for her and her son on the way . Give courage in times of fear or pain, understanding in times of uncertainty and doubt, and hope in times of trouble. Give joy in the birth of your child.

Bless the mothers to whom you have given the great privilege and responsibility of being a teacher of a boy or a girl.

Make all of them can foster the faith of their children, following the example of Mary, the Mother of Your Son.

Help all the "spiritual mothers" who are in the care of the children of  others and assume their task with maternal love, who can discover that engendering life is much more than giving birth.

We ask you to send the Holy Spirit of Comfort to mothers who have lost children, who are sick or separated from their families, who are in danger or problems of any kind. Show them Your mercy and give them strength and serenity.

Fill our mothers with mothers who are no longer with us, who enjoy in Your presence the fruit of their efforts on earth.

Mary, Mother of Heaven, intercede for all mothers, be her guide and consolation. Grant you Grace from God for this life and eternal joy in Glory.

Amen.
