“Whether you are single, consecrated, religious, or married; whether a physical mother or not, the feminine gift of maternity allows a woman to mother another. Through her body, in her thoughts, her words, and actions, women engender life in others.” – Rebecca Sande

When we greet the seasons and days in order of the Church’s rhythm, we can be lifted out of the imminent and into the transcendent.
