Mother’s Day is May 8th this year.
I dedicate this post to all mothers, including spiritual mothers and those who desire to become mothers.
I especially want to honor three mothers I have been blessed with.
- My heavenly Mother, Mary
- My earthly mother, Mom
- My godmother, Aunt K
Thank you for all you’ve done and all you continue to do for me!
Below are 8 quotes on motherhood.
“The loveliest masterpiece of the heart of God is the heart of a mother.” ~ St. Thérèse of Lisieux
“To be a mother is to nourish and protect true humanity and bring it to development.” ~ St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross
“Look at the mothers who truly love their children: how many sacrifices they make for them. They are ready for everything, even to give their own blood so that their babies grow up good, healthy, and strong.” ~ St. Gianna Beretta Molla
“Woman by her very nature is maternal – for every woman, whether married or unmarried, is called upon to be a biological, psychological, or spiritual mother — she knows intuitively that to give, to nurture, to care for others, to suffer with and for them — for maternity implies suffering — is infinitely more valuable in God’s sight than to conquer nations and fly to the moon.” ~ Alice von Hildebrand
“He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children. Praise the LORD!” ~ Psalm 113:9
But standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Mag′dalene. When Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing near, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home. ~ John 19:25-27
“In the evening when you go to sleep, hold your [Rosary] beads, doze off reciting them, do like those babies who go to sleep mumbling, Mamma! Mamma!” ~ St. Bernadette Soubirous
“Do not be troubled or weighed down with grief. Do not fear any illness or vexation, anxiety or pain. Am I not here who am your Mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection? Am I not your fountain of life? Are you not in the folds of my mantle? In the crossing of my arms? Is there anything else you need?” ~ Our Lady of Guadalupe to St. Juan Diego
