Another Crisis magazine contributor, David Warren, has an excellent essay on motherhood. He very adeptly points out such a great tragedy of modernity, that motherhood needs a defense. I find it particularly revealing that the great thinkers of the past felt no need to defend motherhood. Motherhood is so obviously wonderful that tremendous social upheavals are necessary to dethrone it, even without an organized defense.
I pray for the day when Motherhood (and life) are self-evident again.
