We would like to pay homage to all brave motherswho dedicate themselves to their own family without reserve,who suffer in giving birth to their childrenand who are ready to make any effort,to face any sacrifice, in order to pass on to them the best of themselves…
How hard they have to fight against difficulties and dangers!
How frequently they are called to face genuine “wolves”determined to snatch and scatter the flock!
And these heroic mothers do not always find support in their surroundings.
On the contrary, the cultural models frequently promotedand broadcast by the media do not encourage motherhood.
In the name of progress and modernity, the values of fidelity, chastity, sacrifice,in which a host of Christian wives and mothers have distinguishedand continue to distinguish themselves, are presented as obsolete.
As a result, a woman who is determined to be consistentwith her principles often feels deeply alone,alone in her love which she cannot betray, and to which she must remain faithful.
Her guiding principle is Christ who has revealed the love which the Father bestows on us.
A woman who believes in Christ finds a powerful supportprecisely in this love that bears everything.It is a love that enables her to believe that all she does for a child conceived,born, adolescent or adult, she does at the same time for a child of God.St. Pope John Paul II
