This makes me think… it’s one of the best definitions of spiritual motherhood I’ve read

Spiritual motherhood… means nurturing the emotional, moral, cultural, and spiritual life in others.

All women are called to give birth — physically and/or spiritually. All women are called to be Christ-bearers, to receive divine life in the womb of their souls and bear Christ to the world. All women are called to see in Mary’s spiritual motherhood a reflection of their own lives.

If all women embraced the call to spiritual motherhood they would ignite a nuclear reaction that would spread the culture of life through the whole world. The feminine genius would set the whole world on fire!

I explore the theme of spiritual motherhood, and much more, in my book, Blessed, Beautiful, and Bodacious.
