Motherhood was once honored as a sacred calling, the nurturing of a child into an adult considered of critical value to the entire community. The sacredness of motherhood was believed to have the active support of the sacred, ancient wisdom believing the prayers offered by a mother the only prayers God was bound to honor.
Whether we believe in the prayers of a mother being more powerful or not, we can honor “Mother” by honoring ourselves as daughters of the mother we all have in common… Mother Earth. When we honor ourselves as daughters and sons of Mother Earth, all life that receives Her nurturance, Her shelter, Her sustenance, becomes our relatives. And the Earth Mother’s sacred prayer for Her children’s harmony, happiness, and peace, is a sacred prayer we are now being called upon to honor as human beings.
