The BreadCast
Daily Exposition of the Readings of Catholic Mass, from the book 'Our Daily Bread' by James H. Kurt (now with Chanted Verses, and added text of Prayer for the Day). Additional cast - SaintsCast, entries from the book 'Prayers to the Saints' (also by James Kurt). Both books bear imprimatur.

O blessed wife and mother,

extraordinary in ordinary devotion

to your family and God,

you who freely gave your life

that your child might live,

who put the fruit of your womb

before your personal concern –

in this age when so many mothers

in freedom

and seemingly without care

are more inclined to destroy

the life in their wombs

than nourish it

or sacrifice themselves

for their children’s sakes,

pray that these same may turn

to the love you have shown

and find the call of the Lord

upon their souls

in the heart beating

innocently and plaintively

within them.

Pray this holocaust shall be ended.
