The Spiritual Motherhood Sodality (SMS) educates women regarding the importance of Spiritual Maternity and its connection with the Holy Eucharist and the Priesthood. The Blessed Virgin Mary is esteemed as the ultimate model to help inform women about answering their call to holiness, their dignity and vocation and also, their love for Christ’s Ministerial Priesthood.
From the writings of Pope St. John Paul II (His “Feminine Genius”) and at the request of the Congregation for the Clergy, the Spiritual Motherhood Sodality (SMS) has been established to aid the Church in her teachings regarding the Dignity and Vocation of Women as well as the irreplaceable vocation of the ordained Priesthood. We hope to aid many women across the United States (and beyond) in their spiritual adoption and support of ordained priests. As they are entrusted to aid a priest, our sodality aims to instruct them in their role as being a Spiritual Mother not only for a specific priest, but to practice this special maternity within their vocation to whomever they encounter.
The Spiritual Motherhood Sodality is faithful to the teachings of the Magisterium of the Catholic Church and was created for the Honor and Glory of God and the Salvation of Souls. It is consecrated to the Blessed Virgin Mary under her title as “Mary, Mother of the Church”.
