Blessed St. Margaret of Cortona, you lived as a single mother and know well the struggles of raising a child.
You experienced firsthand the stresses and difficulties of being a single mother and you know what it is like to be judged by others and treated as someone who is considered unworthy.
Pray sweet saint for those men and women who are raising children on their own, especially (name person).
Intercede before the throne of God with the angels and all the saints that they be blessed with the support they need, with a safe home, with financial stability, and with the grace and strength they need to be loving and patient parents for their child(ren).
Please continue to pray for all single parents and the children they love, care for, and support. Amen.
