Every Woman's Song
Every woman is a story, might not always have a happy ending, and every story has a history and the past is always worth remembering. To all the women who have gone before me, to all the wom­en who are yet to come ... We all weave our separate stories, but from a distance they are one, we are a rainbow of faces and a tapestry of songs. We all come from distant places in the world, though we are strangers when we meet. We are sisters when we're done, we are beauty, we are mystery, we are one, we are every woman's song, and every woman is a jorney, we are always right where we belong, hearts can guide us, hearts can blind us, still we carry on. Thank you to the mother and the daughters of my soul. To all the women I will ever know. You have given me a voice that I can call my own, you are beauty, you are mystery, you are one, you are every woman's song, we are a rain­bow of faces, and a tapestry of songs, we all come from different places in the world. Though we are strangers when we meet, we are sisters when we're done. We are beauty we are mystery, we are one, we are every woman's song, it is every woman's song. This is every woman's song.

Prayer to Our Lady of Good Counsel

God of heavenly wisdom, You have given us Mary, Mother of Jesus, to be our guide and counselor. Grant that we may always seek her motherly help in this life and so enjoy her blessed presence in the life to come. O, Mother of Good Counsel, patroness of National Council of Catholic Women. intercede for us, that we may be wise, courageous and loving leaders of the Church.
Help us, dear mother, to know the mind of Jesus, your son. May the Holy Spirit fill us with reverence for God's creation, and compassion for all God's children. May our labors of love on earth enhance the reign of God and may God's gift of faith and living hope prepare us for the fullness of the world to come.
Amen
