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!
-Katrina Zeno, Discovering the Feminine Genius-
I explore the theme of spiritual motherhood, and much more, in my book, Blessed, Beautiful, and Bodacious.
