Mother’s Beatitudes

Mother’s Beatitudes

Often, we find it hard to express our love for mother.  Perhaps the words of a six-year-old would be helpful.  Struggling with the mysteries of mathematics, he expressed his affection for his mother this way: “Mommy, I love you as many times as God can count.”

Perhaps the following Mother’s Beatitudes might be helpful to our mothers, busy rearing their families and doing all that is involved in the function of their high office:

“Blessed is the mother who understands her child, for she shall inherit a kingdom of memories. Blessed is the mother who knows how to comfort, for she shall possess a child’s devotion.

Blessed is the mother who guides by the path of righteousness, for she shall be proud of her offspring.

Blessed is the mother who is never shocked, for she shall receive the confidences. Blessed is the mother who teaches respect, for she shall be respected.

Blessed is the mother who emphasizes the good and minimizes the bad, for in like manner the child shall make evaluations.

Blessed is the mother who treats her child as she would be treated, for her home shall be filled with happiness.

Blessed is the mother who simply answers the startling questions, for she shall always be trusted.

Blessed is the mother who has character strong enough to withstand the thoughtless remarks and resentments of a growing child, for again in due time she shall be honored.”
