Celebrating the Royal Priesthood of Mothering

 

Motherhood/Womanhood has a spiritual aspect, one that fits well with Ignatian spirituality.

Spiritual Lives of Women, a Catholic Ignatian Mothers group, believes every woman/mom has a unique spiritual nature connecting us to the creative powers of God and His world.   This makes Womanhood and Mothering vital vocations that should be more celebrated.  

Spiritual Lives Of Women is here to journey with women/moms, celebrate women/moms, champion women/moms; helping support and nurture them to thrive.

Having just five minutes daily could renew, refresh, and rejuvenate our spirits but how to find those minutes when life is so hectic. Ignatian spiritual gives us ways to hear God, find God, follow God.  The spiritual exercises give us time to process and (re)connect with our changing spirituality/life.  The Examen, a prayer practice, will help us be wakeful to creating opportunities from obstacles that come.  Sharing our gifts and talents, pursuing integrity, and having concern for those in need we create a world, family, a community of love.  God has given us the grace, strength, and faith to do all this through our Baptismal roles of Priest, Prophet, Queen.  

I invite you to be with us as we explore and find God in our mothering

CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

1268 The baptized have become "living stones" to be "built into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood." By Baptism, they share in the priesthood of Christ, in his prophetic and royal mission. They are "a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's own people, that [they] may declare the wonderful deeds of him who called [them] out of darkness into his marvelous light." Baptism gives a share in the common priesthood of all believers.
