Duchowe macierzyństwo wypełnieniem misji kapłaństwa powszechnego
Spiritual motherhood as the fulfillment Of the universal priesthood
Languages of publication
The article deals with an important and a subtle dichotomy between the universal priesthood and spiritual motherhood. The first, which is a vocation and Christian heritage by baptism, is to be realized spiritually with the full engagement of one’s mind, love and intention as well as through certain acts which flow from the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. These all create an image of the spiritual motherhood, which is a special mission in the Church, especially for a woman and which finds a number of holy examples throughout history. The ideal of it being Mary, Mother of God, who is to be followed and asked for intercession. Spiritual motherhood plays a magnificent role in relation to priests. The Apostolic See has promulgated official encouragements for it during the Year for Priests.
