Woman: Divine Image Bearer, Life Bearer, Strong Helper, Bride of Christ Emulator
By Jonathan Conner
A wife’s submission is not a sign of weakness or inferiority, but an imaging to the world of the loving submission of Christ’s bride to her Groom. St. Paul calls this imaging a “profound mystery.” It is this profound mystery women have the privilege of portraying to the world. With an appreciation of these divine titles, we are prepared to offer women esteem unrivaled by the world. Any means or method which despises these defining characteristics of women is rejected. The Church values women as women and celebrates their God-given uniqueness. The Church celebrates a woman’s creation in the image of God, her potential as a life-bearer, her esteemed position as a strong helper, and her unique ability to demonstrate to the world the Church’s loving submission to Christ.

Her Children Rise Up and Call Her Blessed
By Robert Harting
As Jesus looks past the soldiers, through the blood streaming from the crown of thorns, through eyes that are in a moment to be closed in death, he honors his mom. He is perfect and holy, and now so are we. Why? Because Jesus’ perfect life is credited to us as this holiness is received by faith alone, we are saved by grace alone. Jesus death and resurrection declare us forgiven by his life, death and resurrection. That is why Christian moms too, are holy, saints and now and also in paradise. Jesus did it all.
But that is not all.
Jesus also gave us Christian moms. Such a woman is a woman who fears the Lord, a woman thus to be praised and one for whom we rise to call her a blessed God gift from Jesus.
