"Mothers are indeed called to love. In fact, as soon as a woman becomes a mother at the conception of her child, "love" seems to become her middle name. She is no longer jut a woman or just a wife, but she is now a mother who is extraordinarily in love with her child. Everything about her is directed to the fact that she has a little person depending on her for safety, nourishment, and his or her very life. Motherhood is an awesome vocation."
