Praying for all those at the March for Life today.

“That special power of loving that belongs to a woman is seen most clearly when she becomes a mother. Motherhood is the gift of God to women. How grateful we must be to God for this wonderful gift that brings such joy to the whole world, women and men alike! Yet we can destroy this gift of motherhood, especially by the evil of abortion, but also by thinking that other things like jobs or positions are more important than loving, than giving oneself to others. No job, no plans, no possessions, no idea of “freedom” can take the place of love. So anything that destroys God’s gift of motherhood destroys His most precious gift to women– the ability to love as a woman.”

~Mother Teresa

It’s cold outside, and I’m thinking and praying for all those Marching at our nation’s capitol today.  Please take an extra moment today to pray for an end to abortion in our country.

    Red, thanks for this great quotation and reminder.nnThat’s a powerful indictment of a culture that values work achievement over motherhood, and where women think it’s preferable to give up their most fertile years working in jobs where they are dispensable rather than being open to a family where they would be indispensable. I keep coming across good Catholic wives who postpone children from the beginning of marriage without serious reason, just because it’s the thing to do when you have an education.
