“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!” Isaiah 49:15
Reflection: In assuring his people of his unfailing love for them, God seeks an extreme example to make his point: he speaks of the bond between a mother and the child of her womb. He declares that the breaking of that bond is practically unthinkable to him.
Prayer: Lord, you have established the bond between mother and child, and used it as an example of the most faithful commitment. Strengthen all mothers and protect all their children. Amen.
