Like Moses

Ferdinand Georg Walmuller Sonntagrune 1859

"Every mother is like Moses... she prepares a world she will not see."  (Pope Paul VI)

  1. How absolutely beautiful! I too thought of Moses today at Mass. I could not get the thought out of my mind that mothers are shepherdesses for their little flock. I pictured the old stone circle where the shepherd would sit in the doorway protecting the sheep at night. This to me represents the home. What happens in the home and what is allowed in or not is up to the mother. But then I pictured Zaporiah and her sisters who watched the flock. When Moses came to the well and protected the shepherdesses from the thieves. See us mothers need to be protected too in our vocation of caring for our little flocks. Christ is our first Shepherd, I pray that in our husbands, priests, and Bishops they increasingly aid us in raising "the world (we) will not see" up to Christ. Amen.
