Mothers have a special chance to make of their lives a gift. In so doing, they become treasures. When a mother makes that rare choice, a conscious decision to live for love and make one’s whole life a gift to others, her life is like a precious jewel box, radiant with beauty. It calls to mind perhaps the most beautiful of all churches of all time, Sainte-Chappelle in Paris.
This chapel was built to house a relic of Christ’s crown of thorns. Just like a mother, who houses a treasure, she too, can become a treasure. May all women find their special way of becoming a gift to others and living a life of love.
