Fearful Yet Overjoyed

"Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went away quickly from the tomb,
fearful yet overjoyed and ran to announce the news to his disciples..."
"This is beautiful, and this is the mission of...
mothers and women...to give witness to their children
and grandchildren that Christ is Risen!"

"[F]eminine genius is centered on the redemptive act of Jesus Christ...
[For] a woman's relationship to the sacred keeps the Church and society on an even keel..."
Feminine Genius

"For our children to be 'godly offspring', they must orient their lives more
and more around Jesus as their King..." (p. 336).
Applying Our Faith in Service in Catholic Education: Homeward Bound

"The essence of evangelization is to tell everybody,
'Jesus died for you'" (Audio, April 6, 1999).

for you with love of a mother's heart to lead you to her Son."

But together, we can do something beautiful for God.

"Everyone works in the service of man. We doctors work directly on man himself... We have opportunities to do good that the priest doesn't have. Our mission is not finished when medicines are no longer of use. We must bring the soul to God... Catholic doctors are so necessary!"

"I grew up atheist.  As far back as I can remember,
it seemed simply obvious to me that neither God nor any kind of spiritual realm existed...
Research led me to the shocking conclusion that God exists,
and more shocking conclusion that 
he became man in the form of Jesus of Nazareth."

The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers: Reclaiming Our Passion, Purpose, and Sanity
Dr. Meg Meeker

From the heart of a parent, uniting with Mary in prayer and reflecting on the thoughts she may
have had beginning with her son's infancy, then empathizing with her being confronted with Christ's Passion, is an incomprehensible experience.  To imagine her as a mother witness her son after the Resurrection, is simply stunning, captivating, and points one to God's grace, comfort, power, and miracle available in the lives of us all. - Edward C.L.D., Catholic Dads HQ
