Self-paced online course with 8 interactive lessons.
Join us in this reflection on the journey of motherhood as witnessed through the eyes of Mother Mary, the Mother of Jesus and the Divine Mother of the Christian tradition. There is probably no other character in scripture who so perfectly represents the ecstasies and agonies of motherhood – from her unplanned pregnancy to the untimely execution and death of her son. In having had the fullness of the human experience of motherhood, Mary has become an “everywoman” – helping us to know we are not alone in the struggles of motherhood and that we have someone with whom we can also share our joys.
In eight interactive lessons, you will have an opportunity to reflect on the many stages of motherhood including:
- The Call
- Seeking Support
- Dreaming our Child’s Future
- Setting Healthy Boundaries
- Empowering our Children in their Greatness
- Letting God.
Lessons will include scripture that tells Mary’s story, reflections, meditation activities and opportunities for sharing.
It is my hope that through Mary’s story, you are able to find inspiration and support for whatever stage of motherhood you are experiencing, and that like other men and women before you, you find in Mary a source of Divine support and someone you can turn to in meditation and prayer when you are in need of additional guidance, comfort and support.
