Mothers of children, even if they have a thousand, carry each and every one fixed in their hearts, and because of the strength of their love, they do not forget any of them. In fact, it seems that the more children they have the more their love and care for each one is increased. Surely those who are mothers in spirit can and must act all the more in the same way, because spiritual love is more powerful than the love that comes from a blood relationship.
