Spiritual Fraternity and Maternity

Edith

Those who live with Holy Church and its liturgy, i.e., as authentic Catholics, can never be lonely: they find themselves embedded in the great human community everywhere, all are united as brothers and sisters in the depths of their hearts. And because streams of living water flow from all those who live in God’s hand, they exert a mysterious magnetic appeal on thirsty souls. Without aspiring to it, they must become guides of other persons striving to the light; they must practise spiritual maternity, begetting and drawing sons and daughters nearer to the kingdom of God.
Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross
