Soulful Cooperation

'There is no greater joy on earth than to be chosen by our Lord
to co-operate with Him in the sanctification of souls.'

Dom Marmion

Painting: Shannon, in US public domain due to age


  1. This painting so expresses the mother's role in sanctifying the lives she is nurturing and responsible for. The impressionability of their faces is wonderful. What a daunting role we have undertaken and what joy to receive these lives into ours. So grateful for our Lord's help in nudging them along. So grateful for the gift of children. God Bless...

    1. I really like what you said about "sanctifying" children's lives.... I think I'll hold onto that thought, for it captures the essence of what I see as my primary Grandma-goal.
