Voice of the Day: Julian of Norwich

By the Web Editors 10-07-2013
The mother's service is nearest, readiest, and surest. It is nearest because it is more natural; readiest because it is most loving; and surest because it is truest. No one ever might or could perfrom this office fully, except only Jesus. We know that all our mothers bear us for pain and for death. Oh, what is that? But our true Mother Jesus, he alone bears us for joy and for endless life. So he carries us with him in love and travail. - Julian of Norwich + Sign up to receive our quote of the day via e-mail
