Talking about our 'mother tongue' or language is an indication of how important it is to us.   Our mother tongue is our primary way of communication and nurturing our relationships.

How many languages can you recognise?  (2 mins 10 secs)


Here are the answers?


A prayer for International Mother Language Day

Loving God,

we give thanks for the gift of language, 

which helps us to communicate.

Help us to embrace and enjoy the diversity of peoples, languages, faiths and cultures

and never let us forget that

we are one human family, called to look after each other.


We pray this in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. AMEN
