1 Timothy 5:5-22

5Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day.

6But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.

7And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless.

8But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

9Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man,

10Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints' feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work.

11But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry;

12Having damnation, because they have cast off their first faith.

13And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.

14I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.

15For some are already turned aside after Satan.

16If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the church be charged; that it may relieve them that are widows indeed.

17Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.

18For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.

19Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.

20Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.

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.

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.
