PATRONESS OF MOTHERS AND MOTHERS-TO-BE

 
  
    

 
Our Lady of La Leche

Our Lady of La Leche has been a source of inspiration ever since the time of the Nativity. She is the symbol of the Blessed Virgin Mary nursing the Baby Jesus at her breast.  

In Bethlehem where our Lord was born, the Milk Grotto stands to honor this image of our Lady of La Leche. Another replica symbolizing the Divine Maternity is enshrined at the Mission of Nombre de Dios in Florida, U.S.A.

In Metro Manila,  Philippines, this icon and its corresponding name was virtually unknown.  A group of Marian devotees, organizing themselves to form the Our Lady of La Leche Movement undertook its spiritual propagation on September 2000.

 
MESSAGE
Remy Ticson-GonzalesYoung or old, every mother shares a common concern and prays for God's blessing and protection for her child. In whatever state they are, single, married or widowed, they experience similar dreams and fears throughout the many stages of their motherhood. The image of the Our lady of La Leche portrays the Blessed Mother breastfeeding the infant Jesus. May this beautiful symbol of motherhood bring about a renewal of faith in the Blessed Virgin Mary as well as convey a message of love and of hope to all mothers and to all pregnant and childless women.
