You aren’t so different from Our Blessed Mother, you know. Just as she declared “YES- Fiat!” so we, as mothers, are called to do so daily. And I know it’s easy to fall short on that degree. In fact, when we’re looking at Our Blessed Mother, it’s easy to see ourselves falling short on many degrees.
But we’re called to have hope and to look to her for guidance. She wants to draw us closer to her Son. He wants us to be closer to His mother. Where do you want to be. Allow yourself to be embraced by her. And allow your motherhood to be embraced by her. You will find yourself “falling short” less often, and instead graced by her presence and sustaining love instead.
I hope you enjoy this free, printable quote by Pope Sating John Paul the Great:
“Motherhood has been introduced into the order of the covenant that God made with humanity in Jesus Christ. Each and every time that motherhood is repeated in human history, it is always related to the covenant which God established with the human race through the motherhood of the Mother of God.”
