Loading Passage Reference...

There is a patience in devotion; a giving not just of one’s self, but of one’s time. Devotion is enduring and unwavering, constant in its endless generosity, drawing strength not from the heart really, but from the subject of the heart’s attachment. Motherhood is faithful, and here the faithful are called to do as mothers do: devote one’s whole self, body and soul, with trust.
