Pope Francis:
"Mothers- The Strongest          

On Sunday January 1st, 2017, the Feast of Mary the
Mother of God, Pope Francis said:
"Mothers are the strongest antidote to our
individualistic and egotistic tendencies, to our lack of
openness and our indifference." "A Society without
mothers would not only be a cold society but a society
that has lost its heart, lost the 'favor or family'."
"A Society without mothers would be a merciless
society, one that has room only for calculation and
speculation. Because mothers, even at the worst
times, are capable of testifying to tenderness,
unconditional self-sacrifice and the strength of hope,"
"I have learned much from those mothers whose
children are in prison, or lying in hospital beds, or in
bondage to drugs, yet, come cold or heat, rain or
drought, don't give up and never stop fighting for what
is best for them,"
"Or those mothers who in refugee camps, or even the
midst of war, unfailingly embrace and support their
children's sufferings. Mothers who literally give their
lives so that none of their children will perish.
"Where there is a mother, there is unity, there is
belonging, belonging as children."
"The lack of physical, and not virtual, contact is
cauterizing our hearts."
"To celebrate the feast of the Holy Mother of God
reminds us that we are not interchangeable items of
merchandise or information processors. We are
children, we are family, we are God's People,"
"Mary gave us a mother's warmth, the warmth that
shelters us amid troubles, the maternal warmth that
keeps anything or anyone from extinguishing the heart
of the Church the revolution of tenderness inaugurated
by her Son, "(Crux)
