My first insight as a mother June 7, 2011

Filed under: thoughts — axinia @ 10:55 pm

Motherhood is rich on realizations and insights of any kind, probably because it deals with the most sacred aspect of human life – its origin, birth and first steps.

The first thing is realized about being a mother is…the preciousness of human life. I honestly never thought of that before.

A human being is being born so helpless and tiny that it is totally dependant on the outside help more that any other living being on the Earth. Interestingly, the baby care is not only a matter of mothers intuition but of the collective knowledge as well. By taking care of my baby I started realizing what an awful lot every mother must be investing in every child, and how much a tiny infant needs for its growth. How fragile and open to any impact it is, and how important every day of this tiny life is…

Recently I have seen one very special film that highlighted for me the same topic, the preciousness of a human life as seen by a doctor and a true saint.

Giuseppe Moscati (1880-1927) was an Italian doctor, scientific researcher, and university professor noted both for his pioneering work in biochemistry and for his piety. And he was a remarkable 20th century saint.

In every medical case he saw first of all the soul and then the body, and – the most important! – he was willing to help EVERYONE, even in the most helpless cases, even mad or dying. It was claimed even before his death that Moscati was a miracle-worker; some said that he could accurately diagnose and prescribe for any patient merely by hearing a list of his symptoms, and that he was responsible for impossible cures. Reports of his good works continued well after his death, with further reports that he interceded in impossible cases. Moscati was the first modern doctor to be canonized (by the Catholic Church in 1975).

The film is a must for everyone who appreciates something deep and beautiful. I was amazed to learn that such a great personality lived in Europe not that long ago. A true saint full of unconditional love and compassion.

LOVE, axinia

  2. Thank you for your appreciation for how beautiful and sacred human life is. I want to say, life itself, is. For life takes many forms, and shapes itself into the incredible patterns we see all around us, refining itself behaviorally and culminating in the expression of trust and vulnerability of the complex human body.

  3. It’s so wonderful that every happening of your life can inspire a riflection to all of us!…and let me say….you look tranformed yourself from an elegant and dignified woman into a such sweet mother!
