The Motherhood of God

There are few places on earth which appear more forlorn than a home from which the mother has been taken away. Let the father be ever so loving, devoted, and self-sacrificing, what a sense of incompleteness there is about a home from which motherhood, with its brooding tenderness and understanding care, is absent!

When Jesus yearned over Jerusalem, he referred to the sense of motherhood: "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, ... how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings!" Motherhood has always been an absorbing theme for the poet, the artist, and the sculptor. A certain writer has exclaimed, "If I could mother the world, I could save the world."
