Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you.” (Isaiah 49:15)

This is a beautiful verse that praises mothers and their wonderful compassion towards their beloved children, as it simultaneously compares a mother’s love for her child to God’s undying love for his church. We are reminded that even if a mother would ever possibly forget her child, our God would never forget his children. God’s affection for his people and his concern for their comfort surpasses that of a nursing woman towards her child. 

Let us meditate on the the love of a mother, which is tender, and has much compassion for the child that is her own and a piece of her. And then let us realize that God’s love for his children exceeds the tenderest of mothers. 

May God bless all mothers, and may the prayers of our Blessed Mother of God, Our Lady Mary, always intercede on our behalf.
