I suspect that some of you are not “mothers” in the traditional sense of the word. But to borrow from the 13th Century mystic Meister Eckhart, "We are all meant to be mother’s of God for God is always needing to be born.” And so I invite you all to put on your best mom jeans and climb into your minivan...and get to work!

God needs more mothers like them; more mothers like you and me.
