Virgin Mary, a mother for eternity
A mother is a mother for eternity. A mother will never cease to be a mother.
Not only did Virgin Mary carry Jesus in her womb but also in her heart. Her Son, Jesus Christ, never left her heart. A mother is a mother for eternity. A mother will never cease to be a mother. She is not mother just when she carries her son in her womb but remains a mother for eternity.
This is also the case of Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus Christ the Saviour and if she doesn’t carry Him in his womb, she carries him in her heart and Christ never left her heart.
