THE SPIRITUAL MATERNITY IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
The spiritual maternity belongs to the apostolic function of the Church. It is based on the spiritual motherhood of Mary and it can be fulfilled by every faithful. It regards to those persons who want unifications with God, to the young generation and other faithful, but the most obvious it is for convent communities. It is undertaken because of love to Jesus Christ and on the pattern of Holy Mary. The spiritual maternity is the continuation of the mission of ancient desert mothers and of founders of first convents. It is exercised in the Christ Church because of love to God and people. It can help people to approach Him in their vocations. Therefore the spiritual maternity in the Church concerns all the faithful. It is developed in different ways by both secular and consecrated persons - specially prepared to it.
