Thank you, Mother!

I received this image years fact a large one is in my room. From what I understand, it was created by an artist inspired by Pope John Paul's conviction that Our Lady of Fatima spared his life after the attempt on his life on May 13, 1981. On the back of the holy card is this prayer:
To Jesus Through Mary

To you, Mother of the
human family,
we confidently entrust
all of humanity
with its hopes and fears.

Give us the light
of true wisdom.
Guide our steps
in the ways of peace.

Enable all to meet Christ
the Way, the Truth,
and the Life.

A blessed Mother's Day to you. You either are a mom...or have one.
