St. Peter of Alcantara
"I, a prisoner for the Lord,
urge you to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another through love, striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace;"
One more thing: This is one of my favorite scriptures for moms. Other translations use the word 'vocation' for call. To me, this scripture sums up the job description, mission and vision of my vocation. I often fall short, but I strive to live it every day.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, you have called me to the vocation of motherhood. Help me to live out my vocation with humility, gentleness, patience, love and promoting peace within my family. I can only do it with your help and grace. In your precious name I pray, Amen. St. Peter of Alcantara, pray for me.
