Quote by Pope Francis

“As a mother takes upon herself the burdens and weariness of her children, so too, does God take upon Himself our sins and troubles. . . He wants to take us in his arms, protect us and free us from harm and evil.” (Pope Francis, in Tbilisi, Georgia)
    Sebastian has a high fever and has been miserable for the past 24 hours.  I have held him non-stop, read books too him, caressed him, fed him, and cared for him through the night.  What I would do to alleviate his pain!  I certainly have put my life on hold to tend to his suffering.  This is just what mothers do.
     God designed motherhood for us to know something about His nature, His compassion, his dedication to us.
