21I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.
22Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men's sins: keep thyself pure.
23Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake and thine often infirmities.
24Some men's sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment; and some men they follow after.
25Likewise also the good works of some are manifest beforehand; and they that are otherwise cannot be hid.Next Verse 26
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.
