This Mother’s Day, I am thinking of all of my fellow mothers who I have walked with on this path of joy and sorrow, delight and drudgery. I am praying for those who have had their heart split in two from the sword of sorrow — miscarriages, stillbirth, disease and death of beloved children. We turn to Mary for comfort and solace.
Who are your models of motherhood?
The Scriptures — both the Old and New Testaments — are filled with stories of faith-filled mothers. These ancient women faced some of the same challenges and felt many of the same emotions that mothers feel today.
