Hymn of the Month: September – Mother Dear, O Pray for Me
  • This Marian hymn along with “Holy God We Praise Thy Name” were two of the best-known Catholic hymns of the 20th century. Not familiar with this hymn? Then take a few moments to read about the author and composer and then ask your organist, music director, or parish priest to incorporate this hymn into your choir or parish repertoire.

  • Thanks, Don9of11, for this very comprehensive historical sketch of the origins of this fine hymn; and your spiritual reflections were quite moving, too. This certainly is a hymn we should hear more often!
