Irish Blessings and Irish Sayings for Mothers Day


“May you always know… The fragrance of flowers, The feel of the sun on your shoulders and always – the warmth of your child’s love.” An Irish Mother’s Blessing



“There is but one and only one on earth there is no other. In Heaven a noble work was done when God gave man a Mother.” old Irish Saying
“All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That’s his.” ~ Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest, 1895

“God made a wonderful mother, A mother who never grows old: he made her smile of the sunshine, And he molded her heart of gold; In her eyes He placed bright shining stars, In her cheeks fair roses you see; God made a wonderful mother, And He gave that dear mother to me.” ~ Pat O’Reilly, Excerpt from his poem Wonderful Mother


“A Mother is one who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take.” old Irish saying

“Gods most precious work of art is the warmth and love of a Mothers heart.” old Irish saying

An Irish Prayer for Mary’s Month … May

“Mother Mary, during this the fairest month of all the year, may we always remember that you reveal to us the mother love of God and that the image of Madonna and child is also an image of God and us. Help us to see that God loves each of us with a mother’s passion, even greater than the one you experienced when you held Jesus in your arms. And, should St. Peter lock us out of the front door of heaven, please be on guard at the back door so that we may be safe with you, as the Irish say, a half hour before the devil knows we’re dead. Amen.” Fr. Andrew Greeley
